Quest Speaker - Jenny Meadows

Jenny Meadows is firmly established as one of Britain’s leading female athletes. Jenny has represented Great Britain since 2000 when as part of Great Britain Juniors 4x400m relay team they became World Junior Champions.

In 2008 Jenny won the European Team Cup and was part of the Olympic team in Beijing. Jenny then set about establishing herself as a force to be reckoned with not only on the national circuit but on the international arena at large.

Her break through came at the 2009 World Outdoor Championships in Berlin where she won a magnificent bronze medal in a life-time best of 1:57.93 and became the 3rd fastest British women of all time. Since Berlin, Jenny has gone from strength to strength; improving her indoor PB first at the Birmingham Grand Prix in February 2010 and becoming the British Indoor record holder, then again at the World Indoor Championships in Doha where she was awarded the captaincy of the Great Britain team and claimed the Silver medal in a time of 1:58:43.
