Exeter Harrier Karla Drew set five personal bests on her way to winning the senior women’s England pentathlon championships in Sheffield on Saturday.

She recorded a PB time in the 60m hurdles of 8.43secs and then followed it up with record breaking performances in the high jump 1.77m, shot put 11.40m, long jump 5.68m and 800-metre sprint in 2.22.58.

It saw the Sheffield Hallam University psychology student, from Exeter, claim 4,136 points overall.

This was also a personnel best total and 139 points ahead of her nearest competitor. The win saw Drew move to 13th in the all-time ranking and also qualify to represent Team GB in Valencia at the end of this month.
