Hannah To Compete in Czech Republic

Published by Malvern St James Girls' School on Tuesday 20th of January 2015

2015 has started well for Hannah Tapley, a Year 11 student at Malvern St James Girls' School. She competed in her first event of the year last weekend; the Midlands AA Indoor Open at the Alexander Stadium in Birmingham.

She jumped brilliantly, clearing 1.70m and very nearly reached 1.75m. As a result, she has been selected by England Athletics to jump in an international high jump competition in Hustopece, Czech Republic on 24 January. This selection arose because Hannah has been identified as a potential candidate for the World Youth Athletics Championships in Columbia in the summer.

Some of the world's best high jumpers will be competing in the A competition in Hustopece and Ivan Ukhov, the Olympic champion, has confirmed he will be jumping. Hannah is delighted to be part of the 10-strong England Athletics team and will be jumping in the women's B competition.

The future continues to look bright for Hannah and a jump of 1.78m would mean that she could be considered for selection for the GB team.
