Superb Silver Medal For Elly Hind

Elly Hind represented Radley at the England Athletics Indoor Combined Events Championships in Sheffield on 10 March. This was a high quality competition with the best 50 combined event athletes in England. She started the day with a near PB of 9.40s in the 60m hurdles and went on to 5.10m in the long jump. Shot came next, and a PB of 8.07. High jump followed and after three attempts at 1.68m and 12 jumps in total, she finished with 7cm PB of 1.65m. That puts her second in the current UK rankings. After a quick 'warm up' in a snow shower, she rounded off the day with her least favourite event, the 800m, but achieved another PB of 2.36.42, making a total points score of 3229 and a well deserved silver medal. She also beat the existing Club record by nearly 500 points.
