The National Championships and the Indoor City Challenge were the final preparation competitions for Jessica before the European Indoor Championships.
It gave Jessica an opportunity to compete in all the Pentathlon events before the big day. From my perspective Personal best performances in the 60m Hurdles and the 60m show that Jessica is in excellent running condition. Being close to personal bests in the jumps again shows she is in good form.
I suppose a personal best in the shot putt and everything would be ready to go. (but, you can’t have everything!).
The main thing for me is competition fitness, the ability to compete in a number of events in a day and produce good performances. That was the main reason for the competitions, like mini Pentathlons they put body and mind under pressures similar to the real thing.
This was the real test and I am pleased with the results. Next stop Birmingham and the real thing.
