Amy had a fantastic day winning both area and county championships among a field of 12 athletes, winning individually in the hurdles, the high jump, the 800m and coming second place in the long jump.

This fantastic achievement has completed an excellent season for Amy who has competed in three different leagues for the City of Norwich Athletic Club (CONAC).

From 19 high jump competitions Amy has won 12 and has been in the top placing in 4. In 80m hurdles she has competed in 12 races, won 8 and has been in the top placing in 3.

Well done, Amy!  Here’s to an equally successful  2016/2017 season.
