Amy Hunt, Sophie Cook and Yasmin Miller all win gold medals at the British Indoor Athletics Championships

We were treated to a showcase of some of the UK’s most talented athletes over the weekend at the British Indoor Athletics Championships.

On 22 and 23 February, the Emirates Arena in Glasgow played host to some of Team GB’s most exciting sportswomen as they battled it out to beat their PBs and take home a gold.

17-year-old Amy Hunt had an excellent weekend, winning the women’s 60m with a time of 7.39 seconds. Competing in her first senior British championship event, the junior 200m world record holder told the BBC that “to come away with a gold [was] surreal”.

Yasmin Miller won her first British gold in the 60m hurdles, crossing the line in 8.29 seconds following a faultless run and proving herself as a fierce track competitor.

As for the field events, pole-vaulter Sophie Cook took gold as expected, upping her PB to 4.5m. “I am over the moon to have jumped a personal best today, I wanted to prove I was worthy of the title,” she stated in a BBC interview.

In the women’s long jump, Abigail Irozuru won the gold medal with a season’s best of 6.60m.
