Student of St Mary’s University, Twickenham Anna-Emilie Møller has retained her U23 title at the European Cross Country Championships.
Hosted in Lisbon, Portugal on 8th December, the Championships brought together the leading athletics talent from across Europe to compete on a tough course. Anna was joined at the championships by five fellow Endurance Performance Centre (EPC) Athletes from St Mary’s.
This is the second year that Anna has won the U23 title at the European Cross Country Championships, and joins the 3000m Steeplechase and 5000m titles that she won on the track at the European U23 Championships in July. Anna completed the 6225m course in 20:30, 39 seconds quicker than second place.
In the Women’s U20 race, EPC Athlete Izzy Fry ran as part of the British Team who won the team competition and was the fastest athlete in the team. She completed the 4225m course in 14:33 to finish sixth overall.
Speaking of their performances, Head of Sport at St Mary’s Andrew Reid-Smith said, "Anna produced a very impressive run to break up the field and retain the title. It was also great to see Izzy's run, a positive and assured performance that she should be very proud of."
