Finn Valley AC high jumper Sommer Lecky aims to make an impression in Sunday’s World U20 final after a perfect day in qualification.
“It was tough out there today because it’s really warm,” Lecky said.
“Job done and final here I come!
“I was nervous, but they were good nerves. I could control them. I felt relaxed once I came out on the track.
“If I was to jump on today, I would have been up there. I felt really good. Hopefully I can recover well and come back for the final.”
Lecky, who finished tenth in the Commonwealth Games in Australia earlier this year, has a personal best of 1.86m in the event.
The Castlederg woman is coached by Niall Wilkinson and has created history in becoming the first Finn Valley athlete to make a world final.
She said: “We’ll see what happens in the final. Anything can happen once you’re there.”Tags:
