In the first heat of her 60m, coupled with a good start and her ever-improving pick-up phase, she took second place in a new personal best time of 8.32sec, well inside the National qualifying standard.

Her second heat saw her demonstrate consistency when she recorded 8.34sec for third spot.

Drawn in the outside lane in the 200m and with a dynamic drive out the blocks, she controlled the race from the start to win in an excellent new indoor PB time of 27.38sec, which augers well for the summer season.

She now moves on to the Sussex indoor and national indoor championships next month.
