Updated 10:53am Friday 7th March 2014 in Sport
FORMER Warrington Guardian Sports Personality winner Abi Fitzpatrick has scooped 400m silver at the British University and College Sports Championships in Sheffield.
The 21-year-old Sale Harriers athlete, who actually specialises in the 400m hurdles, earned passage into a tightly contested final when breezing through the heats and recording the third-fastest time in the semi finals.
In the final she ran a credible second place behind champion 400m runner Amy Wilcock in a time of 54.72 seconds.
Fitzpatrick can now look forward to the hurdling season and her eyes are firmly focused on a place at The 2014 Commonwealth Games.
