Gold medal for Kaliyah at the Indoor National Championships
Kaliyah qualified for the U17’s Indoor Athletics National Championships in Sheffield in the 60m sprint, 200m and the Long jump.
Congratulations to Kaliyah as she came away with three medals: silver in the 60m sprint (7.70 seconds), silver in the long jump (5.67 metres) and gold in the 200m (24.67 seconds). Not only did she achieve a new PB but she is now ranked number 1 in the UK for her age group. We are extremely proud of her and these massive achievements.
Kaliyah has now set her sights on qualifying for the World U18 Championships 2019. She is training extremely hard whilst revising for her GCSE’s in May. Kaliyah has to achieve the qualifying time of 23.50 seconds twice once the outdoor season starts in May. We wish Kaliyah all the best in her training and her future competitions this year and look forward to hearing of her achievements.
