A second podium spot for Amber

August 20, 2019

In her second ever triple jump competition, Brighton & Hove AC under 15 athlete, Amber Purcell, leapt out to 10.47m to secure a second superb silver medal, at the South of England Championships. On Saturday Amber had long jumped 5.21m in the long jump.

Across the weekend there were many promising performances from Brighton and Hove athletes in the blustery conditions at the Julie Rose stadium in Kent.

It was also good to see that a larger number than usual made the effort to attend the regional championships. Well done to all athletes who competed.
