Congratulations to teenage javelin thrower Lizzie Korczak who broke the club’s under 20 and Senior women’s record and set a county U20 best, after launching her spear out to a massive 48.51m, at Lee Valley on Sunday. This was a five-metre personal best!
The mark topped that of fellow Brighton and Hove athlete – Samantha Redd – whose 47.66m was set in 2002 – a year before Lizzie was born.
As a result of this achievement, Lizzie has been invited to take part in the British Championships in Manchester this weekend.
The star thrower now holds the club and county under 15, under 17 and under 20 javelin records.
