West Norfolk AC 100 metre hurdler Tayla Benson ran a personal best time of 14.56 in the recent England AA championships at Bedford.
The time in the heats qualified Benson for the final where she finished a creditable seventh against the very best in the UK. Benson now ranks 12th in the UK at the 100m hurdles and second in East Anglia, just a tenth of a second behind an athlete from Peterborough.
Benson, part of the successful West Norfolk AC hurdles training group, has improved her sprint hurdles personal best this year from 15.47 to 14.56.
Recent improvements have included a fine fourth place in the South of England Championships, second in the Eastern Championships and a Norfolk Championship first place.
Competing for Norfolk in the Youth Development League, Benson has also improved her 100m and 200m best times recently.
