Jess sets new Combined Events club record on England debut

17 Dec 2016

Jess Hopkins was in excellent form on her international debut in Ireland last weekend.  Having finished second at the English Schools Combined Events Championships in September, Jess pulled on an England vest for the first time at the SIAB Combined Events International in Athlone on 10th December.

It was a hugely successful event for both England and for Jess, as the England team swept to a dominant victory, and individually Jess again finished in second place over all.

During the course of the event, Jess recorded a PB in the 60m Hurdles, where she finished 5th, won the High Jump, and was second in the Shot.

Overall, her final score of 3463 was a new U17W Club Record, eclipsing the mark set by Hayley McLean five years ago.
