Olympic long jump champion Greg Rutherford presented awards to Buckingham athletes Amber Evans and Amy Radford at the annual Marshalls Milton Keynes Athletic Club’s awards night.

Amber, who attends Thornton College School with Amy, received the track and field award for U13s and Amy won the girls cross country U15s Athlete of the Year.

It has been an outstanding year for both of them, with Amber, who competes for both Buckingham and Milton Keynes athletic clubs, becoming the Bucks Schools long jump U13 champion having set a new record, while Amy, along with her fantastic year in cross country, also became the County champion at 3000m at the Bucks County Schools Championships in June.
