England Athletics Age Group Indoor Championships, Sheffield

Princethorpe College’s Annabelle Pask of Coventry Godiva Harriers take the under 17 women’s pentathlon title at the England Athletics Age Group Indoor Championships in Sheffield.

Pask had made an excellent start to her day, running a personal best 8.95 in the 60m hurdles to take an early lead, but slipped to second after her 1.53m high jump.

Annabelle’s shot put however, proved decisive, as the 2013 Midland champion outdoors recorded a PB of 10.32m to set up a 132-point lead. With an excellent 5.59m long jump, Annabelle, who was sixth last year, entered the final event, the 800m 59 points ahead and her 2.34.98 time was enough for victory with a total of 3483 points.

With the championships incorporating the Midland Counties, Northern Athletics and Welsh U17 championships, Pask also took home Midland indoor gold.
