Re: Who was Rachel Hughes (Hampshire)?

Mr H - Great shame, and as you say, must have been a fantastic athlete to have the time, still 30 odd years later.

Jessica Hicks??

What happened to Jessica Hicks. Two years ago she was running 4.28 as a 13/14 year old, now competing in 300mH - 50 ish and triple jump - circa 10m. Any ideas? I know she moved from Gloucester to Birchfield, now back down south.

Who was Rachel Hughes (Hampshire)?

I read on the UKA site about Rachel Hughes who won the Inter-Counties U13 race in 1981 and was the emily pigeon of her day. What else did she do and what happened to her?

Cheers

Sian Edwards

Sian Edwards is one for the now and future, and a good example of a girl who wasn't at the front of big XC races at U13 and U15. Too many younger runners are burnt out by over enthusiastic parents and coaches before they get going. Blue is good at longer distances, however, she needs to work on her ...
