European Junior Champion
To say that Amy burst onto the international athletics scene in 2019 would be an understatement. Mannheim, Germany, an important fixture on the European Junior athletics circuit, provided the perfect platform for Amy to leave her mark on the record books. She stormed to a U18 World Record over 200m, an accolade she shared with one person, her male counterpart, Usain Bolt. The performance was everything but a one-off and Amy backed up her early season form by capturing the 100m British and 200m European Junior titles during the 2019 summer season whilst also helping the GB junior 4x100m team secure a European gold medal.
Amy’s talents are by no means just limited to the athletics track. She’s a straight-A student whose personality shines just as brightly as her spikes. Having recently graduated from Cambridge University with a degree in English Literature, she is as smart as she is fast. Still, she will be putting her academic ambitions on hold for the next few years whilst she fully focuses on her athletic ambitions.
It seems incredible to think that there is any more time left in Amy’s diary once you take all these achievements into account, but Amy isn’t used to taking the trodden path. When she’s not studying or training she’s practicing the cello, something she uses to take her mind off the intensity of the athletics season and the university application process.
As the British Athletics Writers Association Young Athlete of the Year in 2019 and as a SportsAid “One to Watch” there’s no doubt that Amy is set to blaze her own trail both on and off the track. We couldn’t be more excited at Summus Sports about helping her on her journey.
