WSEH athletes were in superb form at the England Athletics Under 20/23 Championships in Bedford last weekend.

A Rio 2016 Olympic Games qualifying mark was achieved, plus similar marks for the World Junior and European Youth Championships.

The Olympic mark fell to Sophie Papps in her first real competition after a year off.

She recorded 11.12 seconds to win her heat in the 100m by a street but did not contest the final having achieved her objective.

Morgan Lake qualified for the World Junior Championships with a winning height of 1.90m in the high jump.

Two WSEH U20 athletes, in the U18 hammer, achieved the qualifying mark for the European Youth Championships. Jake Norris threw 77.44m and Bayley Campbell 69.71m.

Several other WSEH athletes emerged as national champions. Taylor Campbell, the elder brother of Bayley, won the U23 hammer title with 68.75m.

Joey Watson took the U23 shot with 16.77m and Jake Norris won the U20 hammer event with a personal best (pb) of 70.79m.

The WSEH ladies also made the podium with Jessica Robinson winning the U20 pole vault with a pb of 3.90m. Amy Holder won the U23 discus with an excellent 53.10m and there was another inspired victory for Hannah Johnson in the U23 javelin with 49.82m.

Steph Clitheroe took silver in the U23 100m hurdles in 13.71, and Jessica Knight bronze in the U23 400m in a pb of 53.70.
