Emily travels with the England Northern Region team to Loughborough University tomorrow for the opening ceremony tomorrow night. The athletics competition starts at 11am and Emily is one the first events up with the women’s ambulant shot put. Last year Emily won Gold at the same event with a best throw of 6.93m. That seems such a long time ago. A lot has happened in a year in Emily’s shot put. Her current PB is 8.73m and we are hoping to better that in the 3 remaining competitions she has left.
Later in the afternoon Emily competes in the women’s ambulant 200m. Again last year Emily won a silver medal but this year there will probably some stiff competition and Emily will do well to win a medal of any sort but as always it’s doing it on the day that counts. Good luck to all athletes who are competing.
