Morpeth Harriers latest recipient of the Linden Homes Athlete of the Month Award
was the perfect example of a very young talent who decided to try out an event,
took a liking for it, worked on it with more than a little help from her coach,
and then paid rich dividends by becoming a regional champion,
and excelled as a winner in every sense of the word, and climbed up the UK Rankings,
where she now sits as nineteenth in her Under 13 age group for 60m Hurdles on the Indoor Circuit.
Amy Lott became the North Eastern Counties Indoor Champion at the very end of January,
however during February she excelled even more by improving her time to 10.44s
at an Indoor Standards Meeting at Gateshead, her previous best having been the 10.55s
that she had clocked at the January Championships.
Her progression has been quite remarkable under the watchful eye of her Coach Dave Thomas,
her first attempt at the event having been in early January, where she had clocked a best of 10.83s.
Amy is pictured above receiving her Linden Homes Certificate of Achievement
