Grace Goodsell and Daisy Worthington travelled over to Sheffield on the 22nd January to compete in the South Yorkshire Series indoor event.
In the under 15 girl’s long jump event Grace produced a superb leap of 5.28m (only 6cm off her pb) to win the competition AND to move her to first place in the UK rankings for the event. Such a performance so early on in the indoor season augers well for how Grace will perform in later competitions. Daisy also competed in the long jump and took 5th place, being rewarded with a season’s best of 4.72m.
Grace also competed in the 60m sprint, winning that in a season’s best time of 8.07. This performance currently ranks Grace as 7th in the UK for her age at this event. Daisy emulated Grace’s victory by winning the 200m in a season’s best of 26.98, a time that ranks Daisy at 12th in the UK for the event.
Both girls also took part in the shot putt competition with Daisy setting a new pb of 9.39m to take 3rd whilst Grace had to settle for a season’s best of 6.77.
