Knowles-Jones leads from gun to tape
12:00pm Thursday 5th September 2013 in Sport
WARRINGTON Athletics Club star Harriet Knowles-Jones continued her superb season at the England Athletics under 15s/17s Championships at the Bedford International Stadium.
Under 17s 3,000m runner Knowles-Jones took the lead immediately from the gun to set a relentless pace and break away from the pack with Charnwood’s Hannah Nuttall.
With two laps remaining Knowles-Jones pulled clear of Nuttall – daughter of former UK international John Nuttall – to win in 9mins 37.64secs, three seconds short of a personal best and championship best time.
Under 17s men’s hurdler Ashley Kirsopp missed out on a final spot by two-hundredths of a second after finishing third in the 100m hurdles in 13.81secs.
