Year 10 Student Emilia R has been making a name for herself in the world of Athletics after representing the Humberside Team in the Heptathlon event, and finishing in second place! Finishing second means that Emilia is now through to the ESAA combined events finals which take place in Exeter on the 21st and 22nd of September. Her hard work has definitely paid off as she is now number 1 in Yorkshire for the heptathlon and ranked 22nd in the UK!
She gained an interest in the sport when she was just 9 years old and since then has dedicated a lot of her time to competing in a range of events in the local area, her favourite being the Heptathlon. Not only is she part of the Hull Athletics team where she was picked to represent Humberside, but she is also a highly valued member of the schools Athletics Team that recently reached the National Finals.
A huge well done to Emilia, we wish her all the best with her future in the sport. Who knows, we could have the next Jessica Ennis-Hill amongst us!
