Shara wins in Moscow

Friday 14th February 2014

Shara followed up her win in Glasgow last week with another victory, this time in Moscow, Russia.

The British long jumper took victory with a jump of 6.57 at the Russian Winter event, the perfect preparation for the World Indoors in Sopot.

“It is a relatively young team with a number of new faces taking individual places which is encouraging as we focus on long term development towards 2016 and 2017,” said British Athletics performance director Neil Black after announcing the 35-strong team heading to Poland.

“Where there were any close decisions, we have prioritised the British Championships results and it is good to see athletes and their coaches who have made significant breakthroughs in the last year are maintaining those results.”
