Congratulations to Elijah Winnington (Class of 2017) who is swimming for Gold at the Tokyo Olympics. His 400m Freestyle time, at the Australian Olympic qualifying trials, is the fastest recorded in the world in 2021. Elijah started at King's in PrePrep, served as Rayleigh House Captain and led by example with his inspiring dedication to reach his Olympic dream.
