A Tarporley High School pupil has nailed a podium place at the Youth Commonwealth Games.
Talented West Cheshire Athletic Club thrower Emma Howe represented England in The Bahamas and launched the javelin to a mark of 47.04m for a bronze medal.
Howe, who is ranked number one in the UK for the javelin in her under 17 age group, continued her memorable campaign by securing third spot on countback behind eventual winner, Josephine Lalam, of Uganda (51.89m), and runner-up Ellie Bowyer, of Australia (50.64m).
The teenager, who is coached by Dave McKay, Jenny Manning and Dan Gilroy at Ellesmere Port Sports Village, was crowned Cheshire County Clubs' and Schools' champion in May before claiming the English Schools' and England Athletics titles last month.
Howe's club meanwhile also finished third at Whitehaven in the final round of the Under 17 and Under 20 Youth Development Track and Field League on Sunday.
