Silver for Olive at South of England Championships

D&T certainly has a new rising star in the 400m and 400m Hurdles in the shape of Olive Coles who this weekend travelled to the South of England U20 and Senior Championships held at the iconic Crystal Palace Stadium.

Olive has been putting in some pretty gruelling training sessions in the build up to the championships and it has certainly paid dividends.

Her chosen event this weekend was the 400m Hurdles which proved an inspired choice as it saw her take a silver medal in the U20 women’s category in a superb time of 62.98 – a new club record.

Congratulations Olive from everyone here at the club, we are sure to be reporting a lot on your future success.
