Clieo Stephenson is having her best ever season and equalled her life time best time, 11.73 (w -0.2), set this year with her fantastic win at the England Athletics championship 100m final. Clieo is also the current holder of the BUCS 100m title and also won the 100m for TVH ladies team at their European cup match in Portugal in May.

Pippa Rogan U23 high jump champion

For the third competition in a row, Pippa Rogan, cleared 1.75m to win the U23 women’s high jump and narrowly missed out again on another personal best/club record with her good attemps at 1.81m. Pippa is also having an outstanding season having already picked up BUCS and South of England championships titles and a win in her first UKWAL premier division match.

17 years old, Jude Bright-Davies, had a remarkable competition to set a new personal best and new TVH club record, 15.39m, to win the U20’s men triple jump final. This new club record is inside the European Athetics Youth Championships qualifying distance of 14.70m. Jude is the number 1 ranked U20 triple jumper in the UK, having just moved up from the U17 age group where he was the UK’s top U17 triple jumper in 2015.

Two superb silver medals were also won by Chris McAlister in the U23 men’s 400m hurdles (52.13) and Lia Stephenson U23’s women’s triple jump (12.20m).

There were several other great performances from TVH athletes, including the trio Danielle Opara (U23 shot), Katie Lambert (U20 hammer) and Sophie Mace (U20 discus) who all were unfortunate to miss out on the medals as they finished in 4th place in their respective events.
