GBR v FRA v ENG U23 / U20 Combined Events Indoor International – EIS Sheffield 06 Mar 2011

Competing for Great Britain against France and England, the Marchant sisters had mixed fortunes at this combined events international.
In the U23 event, Amy wasn’t far off her pb with a score of 3532 and 8th place in the competition. She ran close to her best in the 60m hurdles, with a time of 9.26s and equalled her seasons best in the high jump clearing 1.65m. The shot was a good points scorer and Amy’s throw of 11.66m, was only bettered by one other athlete. A 5.21m long jump was again close to a seasons best and a pb of 2.32.58 in the 800m rounded off a solid performance.
Competing in the U20 competition, Katy ran 8.97s in the 60m hurdles for the second time this year, then jumped and equal pb of 1.65m in the high jump. After a last round putt of 11.60m and the best of the day in the shot, Katy was lying in 3rd place. In the long jump, two fouls, either side of what must have been a run through and measured at 2.56m,put an end to any chance of posting a decent score so Katy elected not to run the 800m.
