Sophie Hitchon and recent Competitions
A really good start to the season for the British National Record holder and 2012 Olympic Finalist. Sophie’s first competition this year was at Loughborough – March 2nd – where she took part in the British Athletics Hammer Circle Winter Throws Trials, winning with a fine throw of 70:34m and putting her at the top of the European U23 Women’s rankings.
Next up for Sophie was the European Cup Winter Throws in Castellon, Spain where she led a team along with Alex Smith of seven Throwers which consisted of 4 Hammer Throwers, 2 Shot Putters and 1 Javelin Thrower. In the Group A Final, which turned out to be rather flat in terms of everyone’s performances, only three Women threw just over 70 metres and Sophie finished in 10th place with a throw of 66.69m.
