Scarlett wins Gold medal at England Athletics Championships!

A fantastic achievement for Year 10 student Scarlett Gammell who has won a gold medal at the recent England Athletics Age Group Indoor Athletics Championships! The championships, also known as the National Indoor Championships, was held at the English Institute of Sport (EIS) in Sheffield in February, where Scarlett won the position of the Under 17 National Indoor Champion in 60 metres hurdles.

This is a fantastic result for Scarlett, as she was competing in the Under 17 category for the first time as a Year 10 entrant, especially as this category is open to both Year 10 and Year 11 competitors. Scarlett won the final in a hugely impressive 8.74 seconds, having won the semi- final in 8.81 seconds and in her heat ran a personal best of 8.68 seconds. These results place Scarlett at the top of the UK rankings for women Under 17 competing in the 60 metres hurdles. (Please see Power of 10 web site below). 

Congratulations Scarlett - a superb achievement as a result of all your hard work! We wish you every success in your future competitions!
