Emily is off to Loughbourough University on Thursday in her last ever School Games (due to age restrictions).This is Emilys 5th School Games and she has been selected to compete again for England North Region.
Emilys competition starts on Friday with the shot put at 1230pm. In the 4 previous Games Emily has been lucky enough to win 2 silver and 2 gold medals in the shot put so hopefully Emily can secure another medal to add to her total.
Emilys second event is at 1445 pm and is the long jump. Emily hasn’t competed in the long jump at the School Games before so hopefully Emily can produce a medal winning jump along the way.
Emily has always loved competing at the Games in previous years at Manchester and now in Loughbourough. Emily loves competing as a team player and this year is no exeption. Emily will be doing everything she can to help retain the Team Trophy the England North Region won last year and when she isn’t competing Emily will be cheering her team mates along from the sidelines.
This will be Emilys last outdoor competition of the 2018 season and after that its a couple of weeks rest in preparation for the upcoming indoor season.
