Brighton & Hove’s Anning is fastest ever British teen

February 15, 2020

Brighton and Hove AC teenager Amber Anning  ran 52.22s indoors over 400m, competing for her university team in the USA.

This is the fastest indoor 400m ever by a British teenage woman. Last year Anning broke the 49-year-old British under-20 women’s 400m indoor record, with a silver medal run of 53 seconds dead at the British champs.

Running at Fayetteville in Arkansas  for Louisiana State University, the 19-year-old also anchored her relay team to victory, running a 51.85s split.
