Amelia, 15, competed in the Welsh Athletics Junior Grand Prix on Sunday 5th January at the National Indoor Athletics Centre in Cardiff, having entered the 60m and 200m disciplines. She came first in both races with times of 7.95 secs in the 60m, and a personal best of 25.38 seconds in the 200m. The victories are even more impressive when you consider that Amelia has just moved up into the U17 Years category and this was her first major competition at this new age level.
Head of Christ College Emma Taylor said: “Amelia now has the Welsh Championships on the 25th and 26th January in her sights but in addition to this, her times mean that she has already achieved the qualifying times in the 60m and 200m for the British Championships in March. So quite an exciting time for her and Christ College!”
Amelia was one of 500 young athletes on display at the event which incorporated the South Wales, East Wales and South West England Indoor Championships. Amelia’s victories confirm that she is one of the most exciting young athletics talents around!
