Anna Merritt’s Athletic Achievements

On Saturday, Fourth Year Anna Merritt competed in the Hampshire Athletic Championships. She started with the Hammer Throw and not only won Gold with a new Personal Best of 53.69m (larger than an Olympic size swimming pool!) but also broke the Championship record.

On Sunday, Anna competed in the Discus and threw a new Personal Best of 35.87m and took the Silver medal. Anna is in the first year of a two year age group, which makes her achievements even more outstanding. 

Anna has also now been moved to Number Four in the UK in the U17 Hammer Throw and Number Five in the UK in the U17 Discus. To add to that, Anna has amazingly been ranked Number 31 in Europe in the Hammer Throw for girls born in the year 2002. 

Well done Anna, these are all such wonderful achievements!
