Voting closes today (Thursday 1st December) in the 2016 Athletics Weekly Readers’ Choice Awards. The Isle of Wight’s very own Jess Andrews (now Martin) has been nominated in the British Breakthrough category .
The former Sandown Bay pupil took part in the Rio Olympics earlier this year.
The entry on the Athletics Weekly Website reads,
Jess Martin (née Andrews): Now based in Andorra, Martin returned from a competitive hiatus domestically with a bang at the Highgate Harriers Night of the 10,000m PBs to win the British title and qualify for the Olympics where she ran a 31:35.92 personal best.
Voting ends today, so pop over to the AW Website and Vote Now for Jess.
Let’s help the entire Island get behind her.
Honored to be nominated as British breakthrough. Please have a look and vote 🙏😊 https://t.co/wHzBUuSmZD
