Thea Brown podium

Thea Brown

What a weekend THEA BROWN has had at the ESAA England Schools Combined Events Championships at Bedford on the 17th and 18th September 2022. Not only did she become the England Schools National U17 Heptathlon Champion whilst still a year young but she did it in exceptional style.

At the end of the two days of competition she came away with five PB's from her seven events – PB's in the 80mhurdles (11.14), 800m (2:34.15), high jump (1.80m), Shot (11.23m), 200m (24.46) Her overall Heptathlon score of 5030 points was also a PB.

Her PB's in the 80m Hurdles; High Jump and Heptathlon are three new club records. She already owns and has improved her 80m Hurdles and Heptathlon club records and she's finally smashed Chloe Cozens long standing U17 high jump club record of 1.79m which has stood since 1996. What an exciting athlete!

To top it off, she's selected to represent England in November in the ESAA International Pentathlon.
