Surrey County Champion x 3 !

In her penultimate indoor championship of the season, Amelia stepped up to the plate (isn't that baseball?) and triumphed in the Surrey County Championships with a Gold medal in the 60m sprint (after winning her heat and semi-final), followed by a Gold medal in the long jump (leading from the first round to the end).

Her third and final Gold medal came in a completely new event for her - triple-jump (the hop, skip and a jump one). There weren't enough competitors in the U15 age group, so she competed with the U17 women and still managed to win with a Personal Best (PB) of 10.40 metres - not bad for a beginner. Measure that out in your garden or your hallway - it's quite a jump!
