A City of Bath College sports student is aiming high after representing Great Britain at the pole vault.

Hannah Grubb, 17, was selected to represent the country in the under 20s international athletics championships at Loughborough and, despite getting a late call up, took an impressive second place.

I was really pleased with how I did,” said the Trowbridge teenager. “I only found out at the last moment that I was in the team, which probably helped me as it didn’t give me a lot of time to get nervous.

I was really excited before the event and to take second place was a pretty good result. It was a great event to be part of. To be selected to represent Great Britain is a huge privilege and an achievement I’m really proud of.

Hannah is part of Team Bath and trains five days a week at the University of Bath’s Sports Training Village.

You have to be really disciplined if this is something you want to be successful at – and be willing to give up your social life!” she said.

“I enjoy what I’m doing though and just plan to keep working hard and seeing how far I can go.”

Hannah said she was enjoying her course at City of Bath College – the Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sports Science and Exercise.

It’s a very good course and I’m enjoying it a lot. I’d like to go to the University of Bath after College and study further.
