I’m Holly Mills and I was born on the 15th April 2000. I live in a small village in Hampshire with my parents and younger sister and train at Andover Athletics Club, where I started at 8 years old. My coach is James Coney who has coached me since I was 10, training me towards my successes. I have won 8 National Long Jump titles consequently and was rewarded for successes like these with my first ever Great Britain vest in 2016. I am the current European Youth Long Jump champion as well as The Commonwealth Youth Games Long Jump Champion. I am training hard towards another year of hopeful gold medals and jumping success.

To round it off with 2 medals at the National Championships in Sheffield this weekend was amazing! Jumping 6.23m in my final jump in the long jump to take the Gold under a lot of pressure was the highlight of my Championships. I’m delighted to finish my indoor jumping with 6.23m, although it is slightly annoying as I was only 2 centimetres off world Juniors qualifying standard of 6.25m, it puts me in a good place going into my next block of training ready for the outdoor season which I am really looking forward to!
To come away with an unexpected bronze medal in the 60m hurdles closed my season perfectly! I would like to say a massive thank you to my coach James Coney for helping me with all I have achieved indoors and my physio Jo Ponting for keeping me healthy and injury free!

I had an amazing experience this weekend in Madrid at my first ever international Multi-events competition.
It was a pentathlon of highs and lows, but I am extremely proud to come away with the bronze medal after a very tough competition with 4022 points.
I'm also incredibly proud of my team mates Jade and Holly, the other 2 members of the Under 20's women’s team, as we won the Junior women’s team silver medal!
I am really enjoying Multi events and can’t wait to progress to training for Heptathlon for the outdoor season.
