Phoebe is still recovering from a difficult shoulder injury which kept her sidelined for 3 months this year, however, with careful training and rehab, she is fighting her way back towards her previous level.

Notable performances this summer are a silver medal at the U23 UK Champs and a brilliant 4th place at the recent British championships with a season’s best throw of 50.18, only 2m from the podium and a metre from her PB.

Her last remaining event is likely to be the England Athletics/CAU championships at end of July in Bedford, before she returns to the other side of the Atlantic. We wish her the best of luck for this competition.
