An inspired Chloe Law broke the Holmfirth Harriers Triple Jump Club Record at her very first attempt to become North of England Under 15 Girls’ Triple Jump champion last weekend.
Middlesbrough Sports Village played host to the highly anticipated Northern Under 13/Under 15/Under 17 Track and Field Championships.
After a stellar outdoor track season which has seen Chloe compete regularly across ten different running, jumping and throwing disciplines and seen her take an impressive silver medal in the Under 15 Girls’ Hammer Throw in May’s Yorkshire County Championships, Chloe’s victory in Middlesbrough was incredibly well-deserved and hard-fought.
Having never previously competed in a Triple Jump competition before, Chloe jumped a sumptuous 10.41m to win gold on Saturday, 5cm further than Wigan & District’s Emma Pimblett and a whopping 54cm further than Lauren Hewitt, also of Wigan & District.
Even more impressively, Chloe’s 10.41m was more than enough to set, not only an Under 15 Girls’ Club Record, but beat the Women’s Club Record, making her the best female triple jumper in Harriers history!
Chloe’s title-winning jump was also the 10th longest by any Under 15 Girl in the UK this year, meaning she’s ranked 200th overall in the UK. An astonishing achievement for a Junior.
Chloe will take to the runway again in the Triple Jump at the England Athletics Under 15/Under 17 Track and Field Championships in Birmingham on 26th August after gaining the challenging qualifying standard at the Northerns.
She’ll become the first Holmfirth Harrier to represent the club at a national track and field championship in 2023.
