EA Indoor Age Group Champs

At the England Athletics Indoor Age Group championships in Sheffield, Shona Vincent took fifth in the under 15 girls 60 metres. Shona won her heat in 7.95 seconds and followed up with a personal best of 7.91 in the semi-final for automatic qualification. She improved further to 7.90 in the final, a time that has won medals in the previous four championships. In 2018 at this event Shona had finished last in her semi-final, but has clearly learnt from this experience and finished only behind four athletes that were also in last year’s final.
