TVH athlete set new club best at TCU Invitational in Forth Worth, Texas

Lorraine Ugen broke her own Thames Valley Harriers club record for the 100m in the USA on Friday.

The 26-year-old, who is the current British women’s long jump record holder, clocked 11.37 seconds for the 100m at the TCU Invitational in Forth Worth, Texas.

Ugen was able to break her own club record, which she set last year when helping the senior TVH women’s squad win the National League title.

And after a frustrating spell on the sidelines earlier this year, Ugen was delighted set a new club outdoor best.

“I was really happy with the run, I had to take time out from the indoor season after injury to rehab and refocus for the outdoor season,” she told the club website.

“I wanted to get a decent speed session in and kind of see where I was at, and was happy to see that my speed was there post injury.

“I’m looking forward to moving forward with the outdoor season and working on continuing to stay injury free.”
