She qualified for the event with twin sister Lily who placed fifth in the race. Amy ran the race in 2.06.83, Scotland’s Carys McAulay placed second at 2.07.05 and India’s Abitha Mary Manuel was third with a time of 2.07.33.

“We all watched in awe,” she said. “It was exhilarating and we are very, very proud of Amy and her sister Lily for such a wonderful achievement.”

    The whole of our St Clare’s College community gathered to watch both the 1500m & 800m races and were captivated by the performance of both Amy & Lily. Amy’s performance both times was just exhilarating to watch. We are all extremely proud of Amy & Lily and await their return so we can celebrate their amazing achievements as a community.
