Sally Hine from Rugby & Northampton Athletics Club swept to gold in her final track and field event of the year. Contesting the British Heptathlon Championships in Birmingham Sally showed she was still in form by equalling or passing three personal bests during the seven events over two days.

Leading the women’s 60 age group from the first event with a 15.73s Hurdles time and 1.15m High Jump, both equalling her PB, she completed the first day with 6.13m shot and a seasons best 33.64s 200m.

The second day began steadily with 3.50m long jump followed by 11.90m Javelin, but finished with yet another PB in the 800m 3:30.7s. This culminated in a personal best score of 4054pts and the British title. This places her 4th in the British W60 all time rankings, 3rd on year (W64) age ranks.
