SGS Student Beats British Weather to Gain a Personal Best

Stephanie Brooks competed at part 2 of the Gloucester Championships this weekend. Competing for her club, North Somerset, Stephanie shrugged off the horrendous weather by achieving personal bests in her two events.

Taking on the 100m sprint she achieved 12.7seconds which saw her awarded with 3rd place. She then undertook the 200m sprint where she ran 26.4 seconds achieving 2nd place.

Steph commented:

"I targeted the sprints as a guest at the Gloucester Champs, in what were challenging conditions. I managed personal bests in both, breaking the club record for the 200m. I am very happy and cannot wait to compete again."

Stephanie is building up to competing in the National Championship's and her speciality of the Heptathlon.

Andrea Garcia Lock, Head Coach at SGS comments:

"Many of our students that have been to the SGS Athletics Academy have done really well and gone on to do great things. One of our former SGS Academy athletes and Great British Junior's, Jenna Blundell, recently opened her season last weekend with a 13.37 personal best in the 100 hurdles, representing Bristol & West Athletics Club and Sheffield University. This has put her 4th in the UK. Jenna is also a Heptathlete and is now training under Toni Minichiello."

"Tia Jackson has also been in personal best form over in America. Tia recently achieved a personal best of 5m94 in the long jump, putting her 5th in the UK rankings for the under 20's. She is also ranked 9th for the 100m. Tia was at SGS from 2018 -2020 and achieved an American Scholarship to Morgan State University."

"I am really proud of all of our students and wish them the very best in their sporting careers."
