On Saturday 25th January, Amelia won the Bronze medal in the 60m final in a time of 7.91, which gives her a ranking of 9th in the UK (U17s) at this event 200m. This was simply a warm-up however to what was to follow.
On Sunday 26th January, Amelia set a Personal Best (PB) as she won her 200m semi final in a time of 25.35. She followed this up with an incredible performance in the final, beating the reigning British Champion by the narrowest of margins (0.02), winning the Gold medal with another PB of 25.16.
Amelia’s coach, David Norton, said: “It was simply an incredible performance by Amelia. Her performance in the 200m has propelled her to 2nd in the U17s UK rankings in her first season in this category.”
He added: “I have to say however that Amelia’s achievement would not have been possible without Christ College’s enthusiasm, understanding and support of Amelia as she prepared for these championships.”
Head of Christ College, Emma Taylor, said: “What an achievement! A bronze medal on Saturday, followed up by two PBs on Sunday which enabled her to capture the 200m gold medal by the thickness of a vest! These performances confirm that she is one of the most exciting young athletic talents in the UK, and we’re very proud of her!”
Amelia is now focusing on the British Championships which take place on the 1st and 2nd March.
