Brentwood pupil runs personal best at British Indoors

Brentwood School sprinter Nicole McKechnie ran a personal best time in her 400metre heat at the Sainsbury’s British Athletics Indoor Championships in Sheffield last weekend.

McKechnie, 17, lined up against eventual winner Margaret Adeoye, and finished fifth in her heat in 56.84secs.

Adeoye went on to secure her place in the GB & Northern Ireland squad for the World Indoor Championships in Poland next month, while McKechnie’s impressive display at the English Institute of Sport capped a hugely successful weekend for Brentwood pupils.

Brentwood students were also competing in the Essex & Eastern Counties Indoor Championships at Lee Valley and swept the board with a plethora of outstanding results.

Abi Coe was fifth in the 60m final in 8.92 and had a long jump best of 3.48m, while Elliot Corderoy was fifth in his 800m (2:20).

Oscar Robins was sixth in long jump with 4.98m, as Max Lambert took eighth in high jump (1.70m) and also ran the 60m hurdles.
