Grace Redmond is English Schools Heptathlon Champion

GRACE Redmond once again demonstrated her star quality as she won the English Schools Heptathlon last month.

Derek Redmond’s up and coming athlete daughter Grace is now the English Schools Intermediate Girls (U17) Heptathlon Champion.

The 15-year-old took the title with a score of 4475 points, and although it wasn’t her best score of the year, she had bounced back from a disappointing first day to overhaul her rivals on Day Two of the hard-fought contest.

“I wasn’t happy with the events on Day One and thought it was all going wrong but I just wanted to put a good day together on the second day. I was so happy when I ended up winning it,” she told Derekredmond.com.

And Dad Derek was perhaps even more delighted than his talented daughter.

“Grace went into the competition ranked Number Two so was looking to get at least silver,” he explained. 

“But she went out there and won the gold which is something her Dad didn’t ever do! I think the best I ever managed at the English Schools was two second places back in 1982 and 83.

“Grace has a natural talent and we are all 100% behind her all of the way. I’m very proud of her achievements and can’t wait to see what she can do in the future.”
