Arria, Year 8, competed at the Duchy Miners Athletics Meet this month. She was awarded the trophies after coming second in the Under 13 200m, third in the Under 13 Long Jump and third in the Under 13 Javelin.

Arria said: “I have taken part in smaller competitions but not one this big. There were people there from across the county.

“I take part in athletics as part of a club at Carn Brea Leisure Centre which I enjoy.

“My family were very proud of me. I wasn’t expecting to get so many trophies.”

She said she will be keeping them on a shelf at home.

Emily Cromey, Head of Faculty for PE, Art Music and Drama at Pool Academy, said: “Arria had a fantastic weekend at the Athletics Meet. Well done for doing so well. Keep it up.”
