Athletes of the Month - Apr 2022
Hannah Hopper was selected to represent England in the junior women's 10km at the World Athletics Race Walking Tour - Gold Standard race in Podebrady, Czech Republic on Sat 2nd April. This was Hannah's first outing in an England vest. She performed consistently throughout the race, passing 5km in 25:42 a substantial road PB, racing hard in a small group taking advantage of a good field until she was dropped slightly. She maintained her focus finishing with a massive PB of 51:19, a 1:23 improvement on her PB, achieved in Dublin in Dec.
