TRINITY School pupil Sophie Foreman represented England in the combined U20 and U17 McCain Cross-Country Challenge Series in Antrim last Saturday.

She finished in sixth place having completed the 3.6k course in 13 minutes and 11 seconds, only 28 seconds behind winner Becky Straw, who was the national winner for 2012.

However, Foreman came first of the U17 runners, a comfortable 26 seconds ahead of her closest competitor.

Her next race in the McBain series will be the Inter-County Championships in Birmingham in March, where she will be starting in pole position for the Surrey team.

Foreman, who is part of Tonbridge Athletics Club, was selected to represent England after her fantastic run in Liverpool in November.

She has won numerous competitions at local and regional level, including the Surrey Schools 3000m Championships, South of England 3000m Championships, London Cross-Country Championships, and the Surrey Championships at Lloyd Park earlier this month.

On the back of representing her country, Foreman said: "Competing for England was a fantastic experience. I really enjoyed the race and we were very well looked after the whole time."
