Hannah Molyneaux is English Schools Athletics Gold Medalist

At the weekend Hannah and Mrs Bentley travelled as part of the Lincolnshire team to the English Schools Athletics Championships in Gateshead.  Competing at this event is on invitation only.  Athletes must secure a qualification time or distance to gain entry and these standards are incredibly challenging.  Hannah Molyneaux competed in the Intermediate Girls' shot putt with the hope of retaining her title as English Schools' Champion.  Being in the younger half of her age group and having had glandular fever in the lead up to the competition, she had not had the best preparation and was hoping to throw a personal best and perhaps gain a medal.  The qualification round went as planned and she secured a place in the final on her second throw.  During the final Hannah spent the majority of the competition in the silver medal position.  For most this would be a dream but Hannah wanted to push herself further.  When she stepped into the circle for her final throw, you could see that she was focussed and motivated!  Hannah smashed the competition by 20cm, throwing a huge 14.12m!  Hannah finished the competition as English Schools' Gold medallist and has earnt herself an England vest for the international schools' competition being held in Ashford this weekend.  If you happen to see Hannah around school, please congratulate her.
