The season has started with a bang for U17 hammer thrower Anna Purchase.  Having set two PBs earlier in March, Anna increased her PB even further on Sunday at Loughborough University at the Alan Bertram Memorial Hammer Open.  With a throw of 59.80m, Anna has moved up to 4th on the UK U17 All-Time rankings and has bettered the IAAF standard of 59.50m for this year’s European Youth Championships in Tbilisi, Georgia.  Coached by Rob Careless, Anna is part of a growing group of talented throwers and now has her sights firmly set on achieving the higher GB selection policy standard of 62m and challenging the UK U17 National Record of 63.08m.
