BORDERS teenagers Ellie O'Hara and Keira Waddell struck gold at the weekend in the English Athletics Championships.

Ellie, who is the reigning Scottish Under 17s champion, beat off strong competition in the triple jump at Bedford.

The 15-year-old from Cardrona reached 11.50 metres to win by just two centimetres from Victoria Park's Diane Mapamboli.

Keira had a slightly more comfortable victory in the javelin to follow up her title win on home soil earlier in the month.

The Berwickshire schoolgirl's best throw of 46.41 metres was almost four metres better than runner-up Elizabeth Korczak from Brighton.
