Young athlete one of city's all-time best

Published on 15/02/19

A student from Jane Austen College has been hailed as one of Norwich’s top javelin throwers of all time by a major athletics club.

Moira Doleman was ranked in the all-time top ten for under-13s javelin by the City of Norwich Athletics Club (CONAC) for her 2018 throw of 22.04m.

For the 2018 under-13s season she was the top CONAC athlete in javelin, second in high jump, and third in shot put.

Moira’s sporting success isn’t confined to the athletics field – last year she was called up by England to play in the international under-15 korfball squad.
