Young Chichester Runners & AC member Fleur Hollyer competed in her first pentathlon as an under-15 at the annual indoor open combined-events meeting at the Lee Valley Athletics Centre Indoor in north London.

Taking on the new age group hurdles and shot specifications, it turned out to be a very rewarding learning experience as she notched up four new personal bests.

The 60m hurdles saw her stop the clock at 11.83sec, half a second off her previous best, followed by a new 1.27m PB in the high jump, along with a PB 5.02m in the shot.

Although minor runway problems restricted her long jump, she managed a consistent 3.71m, before ending the day on a high in the 800m.

Despite the tight bends of the indoor track, she recorded a PB 2.53.66, which took her overall points total to a personal best 1,667.
