Charlotte Williams continued her remarkable start to the athletics season at the weekend.

The St Augustine’s pupil last week produced a personal best to climb to number one in the UK Under 15 hammer rankings in Blackpool at the Mid-Lancashire League meeting, the Blackburn Harrier throwing 50.57m to win.

She then went to Liverpool on Saturday and threw 53.54m to claim the gold medal in the Liverpool Harriers Throws and Jumps Open, with the sixth all-time throw in the UK for her age.

The following day, she travelled to Hull for the Spring Open Meeting and threw just short of 52m, giving her gold once again.

She now has a week of weights and conditioning to prepare for the trip to Loughborough, where she hopes to keep the PBs and medals flowing.

Charlotte, number one in the UK rankings, has now gained the distances to qualify for the English Schools’ Championships at Gateshead International Stadium later this year.
