  • Laura's most successful achievement of the season so far has been the England Athletics National Championships, where she jumped an equal season’s best of 1.76m and came 5th overall. Laura was over the moon with this as it was one of the strongest fields Laura has ever particpiated within and it was great to be attempting heights she haven’t tried in over 2 years. This currently puts Laura 2cm below the British Senior Championship qualification.  Her aim is to achieve this standard and continue reaching heights and getting closer to her personal best. It is very exciting to think ahead to when Laura's nerve problem is no longer there and she can have full use of her take off leg - something that may or may not happen by the end of this season. 

  • For now, Laura is working on perfecting her shorter run up to aim for higher heights, as well as continuing investigating what exactly is going on with my nerve.
