Brentwood School triple jumper Nicole Harvey, 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 set a personal best jumping 10.65m in the Under 20s Triple Jump.

The championship is a joint event organised by the Essex County and Eastern Counties Athletics Associations.

The Sixth Former, 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.

Harvey 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.
