Proctor set for Glasgow Indoor meet

Tuesday 21st January 2014

Shara Proctor has joined Tiffany Porter, Holly Bleasdale and Jenny Meadows in confirming attendance of the Sainsbury’s Glasgow International Match on 25th January.

It’s the first meet of the British Athletics series which culminates with the Sainsbury’s Indoor Grand Prix ahead of the World Indoors in Sopot.

Porter heads to the Emirates Arena full of confidence as she looks to better her British indoor record of 7.80.

“Moscow was definitely the highlight of 2013 for me,” said Proctor, the World indoor and European indoor silver medallist.

“Given the competition in the event at the moment, I was over the moon to come away with a bronze medal and a personal best.”

“This year there are three podiums that I would like to visit – World Indoors, European Championships and, of course, the Commonwealth Games.”

“I competed at this meet in 2012, but I’m really looking forward to getting familiar with the surroundings and the atmosphere ahead of the Commonwealth Games.”

“My goal this year is to get among the medals, and I feel that if I can jump to my potential, I have the capability of beating anyone. I’m edging closer and closer to the seven-metre mark and I believe that with a tweak here and there, I can make that small jump.”

UPDATED RESULTS

Shara won the competition with a jump of 6.59 to open her 2014 Indoor season.
