High flier: Javelin thrower Sophie Hamilton

The javelin thrower, who is coached by Ken Holmes, has been named in the Great Britain Under 20 team for the Loughborough International on Sunday.

Hamilton is currently top of the UK Rankings for under 20 women after throwing 47.12m at Liverpool last month while last weekend representing the club at the National Athletics League she finished a fine second against senior opposition.

Hamilton is one of four West Country athletes named in the GB squad.
