Oxfordshire's Emma O’Hara, Cosima Berry and Freddie Curtis won silver medals for England at the AVIVA Schools’ International Athletic Board Under 17 Track & Field meeting at Cardiff.

O’Hara, the English Schools’ champion from Larkmead School, Abingdon, finished runner-up in the girls’ hammer with a throw of 47.15m.

Gold went to Scotland’s Kimberley Reed with a competition record 54.63m, adding exactly three metres to the previous best distance set by Wales’s Toni Wells in 2009.

Cosima Berry, who also struck gold at the English Schools’ Championships, had to settle for second spot in the high jump with a clearance of 1.60m.

Berry (Tudor Hall, Banbury) pipped Ireland’s Amy McTeggart and England teammate Robyn Petitt for silver on countback as Wales’s Ffion Bodilly took gold with 1.65m.

Freddie Curtis, from Coke-thorpe School, Witney, was Oxfordshire’s third silver medallist at the meeting, finishing runner-up in the boys’ javelin with 59.78m.

Curtis, who was second at the English Schools’ Championships, again found his conqueror at Gateshead, Huw Bevan, too strong.

The Oxon teenager threw 59.78m, but England teammate Bevan took the honours with 63.50m.

Connie McMillan, from Warriner School, Bloxham, just missed out on a medal in the girls’ 300m hurdles.

McMillan, who won silver at Gateshead, finished fourth in 45.39secs, with Ireland’s Claire Murphy striking gold in 43.41.
