Date posted: 03-03-2013

The England Athletics indoor championships were held at National Indoor Arena Birmingham over two days and local Thurrock Harrier James Pearson attended.

Multi-eventer James came away with two medals from the national championships.

The first was a well-deserved silver in the high jump, with a massive leap to give a new personal best of 1.70m and the second was a bronze in the shot putt with another personal best of 13.82m.

The William Edwards pupil also reached the final of the 60m hurdles and came in fifth. James will also be attending the National Combined Events Championships in Sheffield.
