Hexham Combined Events International

Congratulations to Anna Rowe who won the Home Counties Combined Events International at Hexham this weekend.

Anna (U17) was competing for England as an U20 in her first senior (weights and hurdle heights) Heptathlon event and came out as the winner with 4977 points despite a very debilitating chest infection.

Anna achieved personal bests in the Hurdles, Shot and Long Jump, and season’s bests in High Jump and 200m. Her score of 4977 places her 2nd in the UK U20 rankings for 2015 behind Morgan Lake, with 2 more seasons left to go competing as an U20.

Results are being updated but will appear HERE.
