Originally a Heptathlete, Essex athlete, Jess, is now focusing on the Shot Put and after a very frustrating 2020 she is now looking ahead with optimism and high expectations.
Jess has been in touch with an update. Jess told us: “After having a near non-existent season in 2020, it was great to get back to competing during 2021.
During my season, I competed at the U20 National Championships, against the top athletes in England. I was able to throw a lifetime personal best of 13.05m to secure 3rd place and a chance to compete at the Manchester International Championship. At the Manchester International, I competed for England against athletes from Scotland, Ireland, and Wales. I was again able to improve on my personal best and threw 13.33m, securing another bronze medal.
My next competition is the indoor British Championships which will be my first championship as a senior athlete. I am extremely excited and am equally grateful for the continued support of the Rob George Foundation, to allow me to fully prepare for this opportunity.”
We all wish Jess every success for the coming season and look forward to hearing about some more personal bests!
