On Saturday 29th July, Annabel joined twins Ollie and Lottie to make up a trio of athletes that represented Berkshire in the Under 13 Southern Inter-county Track and Field event against 12 other counties. This is the highest level of competition that Under 13s can compete at and several of the performances ranked in the top 10 in the UK. Therefore, just to be selected was a magnificent achievement as all three were still only 10 on the day of the competition and they were competing against athletes almost two years older.
The girls' team came a respectable 7th overall against some much larger counties. The boys’ team came 2nd overall, only a handful of points behind the winners, Surrey - again a much larger county. Lottie produced a solid performance in the 100m and both Annabel and Ollie achieved personal bests in the 800m and Discus respectively. They all hope to build on this for next year when they will be in closer contention.
