Golden girl

WELLINGTON Athletics Club member Rachel Jennings recently won two gold medals at the state championships.

The 17-year-old won the under 18 girls’ 1500 and 3000 metres.

The wins continued a successful season for Jennings, who also won the under 18 1500m at the state country championships, came fourth in the under 18 3000m at the national all schools championships, and set a new club record in the open women’s 3000m of 10:14.43 minutes.

Jennings will next month compete in the 3000m at the national junior track and field titles in Sydney.
