MEGAN has always shown a natural sporting ability and has enjoyed taking part in activities such as gymnastics and cheerleading.
She was introduced to athletics at Clavering Primary where she quickly displayed a natural talent, initially with cross country running.
Megan was approached by Sedgefield Harriers to join their junior team and competed for a year before becoming part of Gateshead Harriers junior track and field team.
Megan’s versatility made her a valuable team member, concentrating on her long jump and sprinting and regularly being included in the relay team.
This year, despite injuries mid-season causing her to miss out on vital training and some important competitions, Megan has regularly improved her personal bests in 100m (13.27s), 200m (27.4s) and Long Jump (4.62m).
Megan ended the summer season with a gold medal in the long jump at Gateshead’s “Tartan Games” and a silver medal in the 100m, beating some very good athletes that had travelled down from Scotland for the meeting.
