Clayesmore has its own ‘Jessica Ennis-Hill’ in the making! Amy (Y10 Wolverton) has recently been competing in some combined athletics events, last weekend taking part in the Exeter Combined Events Championships.
Despite being up against a competitive field of nineteen U15 girls, Amy achieved personal bests in long jump, high jump and the 75m hurdles… and she even won the 800m! This gave her a final total of 2411 points, which put her in an impressive 4th position (only 10 points short of 3rd place).
This is an excellent result as Amy has only been competing in these types of events this year. She has even shown some talent in the pole vault, so who knows what more may follow.
Well done, Amy!
