Nicole Takes Medal in her Stride

Congratulations to Brentwood School triple jumper Nicole Harvey who hopped, skipped and jumped her way to a silver medal at the Essex County Indoor Championships last weekend.

In her first indoor competition, 17-year-old Nicole set a personal best jumping 10.65m in the Under 20s Triple Jump. The championship is a joint event organised by the Essex County & Eastern Counties Athletics Associations.

Sixth Former Nicole, who competes for Basildon Athletics Club, was in sizzling form at the Lee Valley Athletics Centre in what was a rare indoor outing. Her outdoor Triple Jump record of 11.10m was set at the back end of last season.

An all-rounder, Nicole has been competing in the discipline for just over two years. She trains with the club’s sprinting group at Basildon Sporting Village two or three times a week and regularly represents Essex at regional level.
