Zoey Clark’s superb 400m British Championship win, earning selection for August’s London World Championships, is rich reward for a year that has seen her talent blossom into full flower.
Zoey has in recent years led from the front as captain of TVH’s highly successful women’s team, at the same time harvesting individual successes both at British University level and in her native Scottish Championships.
She has enjoyed great relay days too, helping Great Britain’s under-23 team to European gold in Tallinn, Estonia two years ago, as well as performing in front of a home Scottish crowd in Glasgow’s 2014 Commonwealth Games.
Zoey, who graduated this year with a first class hours degree in chemical engineering from Aberdeen University. Following in the footsteps of Mel Edwards, Zoey is one of a group of Aberdonians – including Tracy Barlow, Myles Edwards, Chris Smith and Fiona Thompson – who have performed with great distinction for TVH. She is coached there by Eddie McKenna who is making full use of the explosive sprint speed Zoey showed as a junior.
With selection for the London showpiece now secure Zoey can relish the prospect of taking her place alongside fellow Scottish stars Laura Muir and Eilidh Doyle – as well as TVH’s Tracy Barlow and Lorraine Ugen – on the biggest international stage.
