Ellie Breaks her own Record

Scotland’s Ellie O’Hara was competing at the B.I.G. event on Monday – and once again came up with a fine Triple Jump performance.

The Edinburgh AC athlete, who is coached by Linda Nicholson, leapt to a new PB of 12.51m that will push on even further her existing Scottish U17 Record for the discipline.

Ellie held the Record at 12.46m but her latest effort will add a further 5cm (subject to the usual ratification procedures).

It follows on from a first Senior Scotland vest at the Loughborough International, with the 16-yeard-old a first year in our 4J Studios National Athletics Academy.

Well done to Ellie, her family, her coach and all involved in her development in recent years.

At the same meeting it was good to see EmmaNuttall win the women’s high jump with a 1.83m clearance that leads the Scottish rankings for 2019 thus far.
