Shara leaped to 7.07 metres inside the Bird’s Nest stadium in Beijing breaking her own British record and securing a silver medal, her first at a major championship.

Coming into the final with a personal best of 6.98m, Shara twice jumped over 7m in a final where all three medallists passed the 7meter mark for the first time in history.
Shara jumped 7.07m third round to add nine centimetres to her British record, and followed it up with a leap of 7.01m in the fourth It had seemed gold was hers until America’s Tianna Bartoletta managed a world leading 7.14m with her last attempt.

Although it may have not been the Gold medal for Shara she was more that over the moon to gain a silver medal after recovering from a foot surgery that kept her out of the Commomwealth Games last season. We look forward to an exciting Olympics Games in Rio 2016.
