A tribute to Damani Mauge
All of us at Croydon Harriers are shocked and saddened to learn of the tragic passing of former young athlete Damani Mauge.
Although not a member in recent years, Damani was a pivotal member of the young athlete’s team in 2016-17 and a well-respected athlete of the training squad.
Highlights as a Croydon Harrier included:
Competing and winning at the Olympic Stadium as part of the Under 15 boy’s 4x100m team.
Being part of the gold medal winning 4x100m team at the 2016 London Youth Games
Winning bronze at the 2016 Surrey Schools Championships in the Under 15 boy’s 200m.
Coach Paul Weston paid tribute:
“Damani was a much-loved member of the training group and played a vital role in our relay squads and the team as a whole, while he was a member with us. All of us at the club are deeply saddened and our thoughts and prayers are very much with his family and friends during this difficult time.”
