Woolven gets GB call up

FOLLOWING the European Cross Country Trials held at Sefton Park in Liverpool last weekend, 23-year-old Commonwealth Games steeplechase athlete Pippa Woolven has been selected to run cross country for Great Britain’s senior womens’ team at the European Championships in Chia, Sardinia on December 11.

This is the Medmenham athlete’s first senior cross country cap and is some consolation for a disappointing track season this year following a recurrent bout of glandular fever.

Woolven recently won her third British Universities Championships title this year at the Duathlon Championships at Castle Combe Circuit a fortnight ago having won the steeplechase event and cross country championships earlier in the year.
