With a hop, skip and a jump in 2014, Olympic speaker Laura Samuel leapt up to third place on the list of all-time female British triple jumpers with a personal best of 14.09m.
Laura won a silver medal at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, where she competed for England. This was her second silver, having also come second at the 2010 World Junior Championships in Canada with a jump that also set a new British junior record. Regularly competing at the highest level, Samuel continues to perform exceptionally well and is striving for further success in the triple jump.
In the same year as the World Junior Championship silver medal, she also won the senior national triple jump title. And a year before that, Laura won a gold medal in the English School Championships. Laura’s talents have been obvious for all to see from a young age, she has risen through the ranks and is now considered one of Britain’s greatest ever female triple jump athletes. As a speaker, Laura often discusses peak performance and maximising sucess, two factors that have helped her maintain elite-level performances throughout her career.
