Molly Jones Competes in National Championships

Molly Jones, Year 12, is a seriously good athlete and recently competed in the Schools National Championships in Birmingham.
The championships had more than 1,400 young athletes competing, so Molly was mixing with competitors from across the nation. Her report sums up her experience.

“I competed in the 3000m women’s race on Saturday 1st September, competing for the England Midland’s team against England south and north and Northern Ireland and Scotland.
There were four other girls in my race, including Ella Mcniven, who was the English school’s cross country champion this year (and competed in 3000m for GB and is ranked 1st in the Uk for 3000m and 2nd for 1500m). I was also against the Scottish athlete, who was the Scottish champion; as well as Katie Goodge who came 2nd in English schools this year.

I came 4th in the race, which I was relatively happy with considering it was the end of the season and the high levels of athletes I was up against. I found it a very good experience for competing at a high level and gave me an insight into what Olympic athletes experience too.”

GMS are incredibly proud of Molly and her fantastic achievement of being 4th in a race that had very talented participants competing.
