Emily had a fantastic day at a cold and damp Nottingham Athletics track. First up at 11am was the 100m. A great start and a big push saw Emily claim the gold medal in a time of 15.92s. Straight after over the far side of the track to the shot put circle. Six very consistent throws with a best of 8.38m to earn the gold medal.
Into the afternoon session , the weather picked up slightly for Emily’s long jump . Again another six very consistent set of jumps to claim a bronze medal with a best jump of 3.39m. Over the previous few weeks Emily’s had a problem with her run up couldn’t put a finger on it but managed to come up with something at training on Wednesday so thanks got to Margaret Smith for that. Finally Emily’s 200m. Another great and strong start with a perfect bend saw Emily race to her third gold medal of the championship in a time of 32.94s.
All in all 3 gold and a bronze medal was a great days work from Emily. It was great to catch up with great friends and have a laugh with them. That’s the end of the outdoor season. A few ups and downs this year, a new event ( discus) will be coming next outdoor season so prep work over the winter months.
A couple of weeks off for Emily to recharge her batteries but anyone who knows her will know she will be itching to get back but no she’s having 2 weeks off. Next up is indoor training for the winter meetings starting at Gateshead and Sheffield in November.
Next year is the CPISRA World Games in Barcelona. Fingers crossed .
