Silver lining for Lizzie

September 3, 2019

Another great javelin performance from Brighton & Hove under-17 Lizzie Korczak, brought her a silver medal at the National Championships on Sunday.

In windy conditions at Bedford, Lizzie threw 45.29m behind Basildon’s Harriette Mortlock who won with 46.11m. In their 10 meetings, this was only the third time that Harriette had beaten Lizzie.

Following an excellent season, Lizzie, a three times  English Schools’ champion, moves into the under-20 age group next season.

Well done to all the Brighton athletes who competed:

U17 Tom Ridley – High Jump 10th 1.81m – final

U17W Kelsey Sutherland  – Triple Jump 10.80m – final

U17 Seb Wallace – 100mH DNF final after 13.74s – heat
