RISING star Amy Williams has made a dream debut for one of the country’s top athletics clubs.
Wearing the Sale Harriers strip for the first time, the 13-year-old from Chester proved she is one of Britain’s top young talents with a stunning display at her new club’s Indoor Open Meeting.
Amy’s standout performance at Sunday’s event at Sportcity in Manchester came in the under 15s girls 60m. Competing against girls up to two years older than her, she stormed to victory in 8.18 seconds – a time that bettered the winner of the U17s girls race and which makes her the fastest U13s girl in the country in 2010.
Amy, who also cemented her position at the top of the British long jump standings, has switched from West Cheshire AC to the renowned Harriers.
But Wests will remain her second club. She has enjoyed a record-breaking and medal-laden 12 months there.
Amy’s year to remember will be compete when she joins her younger sister Olivia at the Queen’s School next month.
Amy’s father Stuart, a Chester property developer, said: “Amy will thrive at Queen’s – I’m confident the school that produced Beth Tweddle is bound to encourage and develop all Amy’s talents.”
