Grace’s Second International

Parley based Wimborne Athletic Club athlete Grace Copeland won her second international vest in two months running for England through the streets of Uderzo in Italy on May 3rd. Following her performance in Paris earlier in the year, Queen Elizabeth School pupil Grace ran 17.34 for the 5Km course and was fourth England athlete home in this well established under 20 event.

Holding back from the initial surge of the expected front runners Grace and three England colleagues worked their way through the field with Grace finishing in eleventh place less than a minute behind winner Nadia Battocletti from Italy.  The Italian, on home soil, led her team to victory with the England squad second out of the eleven European nations represented.
