UK Rankings in Athletics

Well done to Maisy Harvey (9F1) and Sam Gallagher (7J1) who are part of Forest of Dean Athletics Club and are celebrating the fact that every single one of its junior throwers has achieved UK rankings after an outstanding year of dedication to their training.

Now the club is looking ahead to 2018 where they are all aiming to score highly in the Youth Development League, and hopefully, some will compete at the English and Welsh Schools Championships.

Maisy, who throws the Hammer, won the U15 South West Championship in 2017, throwing a 3kg personal best of 35.97m and is ranked 25th in the UK and 19th in England.

Sam won the U13 prize for the most improved at the annual awards evening.

Well done to you both, keep going, you are making your community very proud.
