Athletics Champion

Congratulations to Amber Anning, former BHASVIC student who won a bronze medal as part of the 4x400m women's team representing Great Britain at the 2023 World Athletics Championships in Budapest this August. BHASVIC's PE department are very proud of Amber's incredible achievements. Amber now hopes to join the Great Britain relay team for the Olympics in Paris, 2024 and in the future represent Great Britain in individual 400m events.

Amber attended BHASVIC between 2017-2019, and studied A-level Physical Education, Psychology and Geography before going on to study at Louisiana State University, Texas to major in Mass Communications with a minor in Psychology. Sports Teacher at BHASVIC, Richard Seaman said: "Amber was an exceptional PE student, intelligent, hard-working and very supportive of others in the classroom. She has worked incredibly hard in her athletics career pathway, and she will be an exceptional talent for the future."

Amber's past athletic achievements include winning silver at the Commonwealth Youth Games and at the European Indoor Championship in the 4 x 400m relay whilst still a student at BHASVIC. During her university major she has become a regular athlete for the Louisiana State University Tigers and Arkansas Razorback. Amber and her Arkansas Razorback 4x400m team recently gained the world record fastest time for a 4x400m women's race (Amber's time on the first leg was the fifth fastest female 4x400m time in history).
