U20 athlete sets new club record en route to continuing recent medal success

Eleanor Broome got her hands on a silver medal at the England Athletics Indoor Age Group Championships last weekend, setting an indoor personal best and a new club record in the process.

Following up her recent success at the British University Championships, Broome registered a fantastic jump of 6.17 metres, which looked good for gold until fellow international Holly Mills edged past with the final jump of the competition. In what was a supremely high Under-20 standard, the three medalists moved up to fifth, sixth and seventh respectively in the female UK rankings.
