The final saw an exciting photo finish, the winner clocking 13.40, Bethan in the bronze medal position with 13.46, another huge personal best.The long jump was equally nailbiting, the Year 7 Backwell School Athlete leading for most of the competition with a jump of 4.55 metres, before being out-jumped in the final round with a jump of 4.56m, leaving with an excellent silver medal.
