Hi, I’m Jess Duncton,
I am 16 years old and I’m part of the Cheltenham Harriers multi event group. My love for running started when I was about 8. I used to compete in cross country races and fun runs until I discovered track events!
I soon realised I was capable of doing lots of different events within athletics which led me to compete in heptathlon’s and pentathlons. Currently I’m still competing in multi events but I favour the hurdles which I had a successful year with that event alone last summer. I’m ranked 3rd in the UK in 80mH, but this year I’m still in the same age group so I hope to become No1.
I compete at a National level at Heptathlon and sprint hurdles and had my first England debut last summer which I am proud of and I am currently on the GB long list to compete this year in the U18 hurdles and am waiting to hear if I qualify this summer.
I am hoping for my athletics career to take off, where I aspire to compete in European championships and to have my Olympic dream fulfilled.
Thank you to CASS & Friends for the support and interest, I am very grateful.
