Hanna Breaks Her Second North Of

England Championship Record

Hanna Hewitson was in fine form at the North of England Indoor Championships 2006 in Sheffield to retain her title and gain a championship record.

Hanna who contested the Under 17 Ladies triple jump defended her title from last year and set a new personal best and North of England Championship record for indoor of 11.64 metres to the delight of the crowd at the arena.

Hanna broke the previous record of 10.97 metres with her first jump of 11.55 metres to break the old record which had stood for six years.  Hanna then furthered that record to 11.64 metres which was very pleasing indeed for Hanna, who is the outdoor record holder for the Under 17 ladies triple North of England record as well.  Therefore, Hanna is delighted to the be record holder for both indoor and outdoor events.

Jumps Coach Neil Templeman was delighted that Hanna had broken the indoor record as last year she missed the record by an agonising three cms and was particularly upset that she had not broke the record, so this year she came back and decided to make that her goal for the competition and she did it in fine style.

Hanna will now be back in training for the British Indoor Championships which take place in March 2006 at the National Indoor Arena and Hanna is very much looking forward to the championships.
