Student competes in the Eastern and Essex County Championships

Lily Parris, 9N has recently competed in the Eastern and Essex county championships in the indoor 60m hurdles.

After qualifying for the finals, Lily finished second overall, winning the silver medal for Eastern Counties, but won the gold medal for the Essex County Championship (photo). When Lily met Mr Barrs she explained that she trains at Chelmsford Athletics Club twice a week before school and alternate Wednesdays and then also trains at Lee Valley twice a week.

Next weekend Lily will be competing at the England National Championships in Sheffield for the 60m Hurdles, where she is currently rated in the top 10 in the UK. We could be looking at our next GB Olympic hurdler!
