29 January 2010 / Record Breaking Start To The Winter Season For High School Athlete

Last weekend she competed at Birmingham's Alexander Stadium breaking the under 15s' county long jump record by clearing 4.53m to finish third.

The weekend before that she travelled to London's Lea Valley Stadium for the South of England Championships where she broke the indoor county record for the under 15 girls 60m hurdles three times - in her heat, the semi-finals and the final - finishing fifth overall. This result ranks her eighth in the UK for indoor hurdles.

At the same event Jordanna also came second in the high jump, breaking her own record by clearing 1.65m. And in mid-December at the Indoor Winter Warm-up competition in Solihull she broke her own indoor county high jump record.

Jordanna's tour of indoor athletics competitions will continue throughout the winter.

Headmistress of Truro High School, Caroline Pascoe, herself a former British Olympic rower, said: "Jordanna's continued successes are a testament to her dedication, commitment and hard work. We are all extremely proud of her and excited about how much more she promises to achieve."

Jordanna's mum, Carole Morrish, said: "It's all looking very bright at the moment. Jordanna wants to see how many indoor records she can break this winter and is working hard towards earning her first international vest.

"Mrs Pascoe and her staff have been brilliant, so helpful and supportive. I couldn't wish for a better headmistress."

During this year's indoor competition circuit Jordanna has also attracted the interest of a number of highly respected coaches and now, on top of the expert coaching she receives in Cornwall, she is also traveling to Birmingham at the weekends to see a third coach who is helping her develop her outstanding ability.
