Big leap: Jade Johnson

First published in Athletics by , Sports Reporter

Three Herne Hill Harriers were in action at the Loughborough International Athletics meeting on Sunday.

Jade Johnson continued her quest to reach a third Olympic Games in the long jump.

She ended the day disappointed though as she could only finish in second with a wind-assisted jump of 6.35m – 10cm better than she managed at the Surrey Country Championships earlier in the month but still 30cm short of the Olympic B standard.

Liverpool’s Katarina Johnson-Thompson won with a 6.46m jump.

Katie Snowdon was in action in the 800m race and came seventh in two minutes, 13.63 seconds, eight seconds slower than the 18-year-old’s personal best.

At 18, Aisha Naibe-Wey was the youngest runner in the 400m hurdles A race and finished fifth out of six in 60.40.
