Middle Distance Squad - British record for Sue

British record for Sue Frisby!

Sue Frisby broke the British record in the w55 pentathlon on Sunday 21st June in Oxford. Winning 4 out of the 5 events with personal best performances meant that Sue won the overall event and broke the British record in style.

Her new personal best performances were 13.56 for the 80m hurdles, 8.52m shot put, 4.22m Long Jump and 3.04 for the 800m. The only event where she didn't get a personal best was the High Jump but she still managed a brilliant jump of 1.30m.

Following on from her success, Sue has been selected to compete in the World Championships in Lyon next month! Congratulations Sue and good luck!
