Jenny Meadows is one of Britain’s most successful female athletes. Jenny started her international career in 2000 as part of Great Britain Juniors 4x400m relay team when they became World Junior Champions.

In 2008 Jenny won the European Team Cup and was part of the Olympic team in Beijing. Jenny then set about establishing herself as a force to be reckoned with not only on the national circuit but on the international arena at large.

Her break through came at the 2009 World Outdoor Championships in Berlin where she won a magnificent bronze medal in a life-time best of 1:57.93 and became the 3rd fastest British women of all time. Since Berlin, Jenny has gone from strength to strength; improving her indoor PB first at the Birmingham Grand Prix in February 2010 and becoming the British Indoor record holder, then again at the World Indoor Championships in Doha where she was awarded the captaincy of the Great Britain team and claimed the Silver medal in a time of 1:58:43.

In 2011 at the European Indoor Championships Jenny won Gold for the individual event and silver as part of the 4x400m relay. That year she became British Champion outdoors and won the Diamond League Series.

After cruel injuries in 2012 and 2013, which forced Jenny to miss competing in her home Olympics, Jenny made a return to competitive action to become Commonwealth Games finalist in 2014 and the world leader in the Women’s 800m indoors in 2015, before announcing her retirement in 2016.
