Cleckheaton’s Sarah Holt was another competitor from the Bradford area to just miss out on a medal at Hampden Park tonight.

She was fourth in the women’s hammer final where the bronze medal went to her England team-mate Sophie Hitchon, who is the ballet dancer turned hammer thrower.

The 23-year-old from Burnley hurled the hammer out to 68.72 metres to land her team’s third athletics medal of Glasgow 2014.

Sultana Frizell of Canada took the gold in a Games record 71.97m with New Zealand’s Julia Ratcliffe taking the silver medal with 69.86m.

Holt’s best throw came in the final round when she hurled the hammer to a distance of 65.67. It was a brave effort but not enough to gain a medal.
