Shaunagh's silver success at Sheffield
Shaunagh Brown won the silver medal in the shot at the British Athletics European Trials and UK Championships at Sheffield. The Blackheath & Bromley athlete threw a new indoor best of 16.07 but missed out on winning the contest by just 12 centimetres.
Dina Asher Smith made an excellent debut in a Senior Championship as she finished 5th in the final of the 60 metres in 7.37, the same time as the bronze medallist. Earlier she had set a personal best in winning her heat in 7.35. Montell Douglas was 6th in the final in 7.40 having timed 7.33 in finishing second in a semi final in which Dina was third in 7.39. Grace Sheppard timed 7.81 in the heats.
