Thames Valley Harriers star endured tough weekend in Germany

Thames Valley Harriers athlete Lorraine Ugen was far from happy with her below-part display in the women’s long jump at ISTAF IAAF World Challenge in Berlin, Germany last Sunday.

The 26-year-old British record holder best jump in the even came in the second round, when she managed an effort of 6.48 meters.

Following that jump, Ugen was unable to register a mark with her final four efforts.

Ugen’s performance in Berlin saw her finish well down on her season’s best of 6.78m, which was set in the American city of Oregon in May.

“It was not very good,” were the only words the 26-year-old could muster when asked to describe the disappointment at her efforts in Germany.

American ShaKeela Saunders triumphed in the event in dramatic fashion, leaping 6.72m in the final round to beat Ivana Spanovic, the European champion from Serbia, by just six centimetres.

Britain’ Shara Proctor was third with 6.62m.
