‘Kamlish beats blade babe’ was the headline to the piece in Athletics Weekly which described Sophie’s great 100 metre win in the Manchester Games narrowly beating Dutch Paralympic runner Marlou Van Rhijn. Sophie clocked 13.24 to the Dutch star’s 13.26. Sophie accelerated away brilliantly over the first 30 metres and hung on to win despite the Dutch star closing in the second half of the race. Sophie gave a great TV interview afterwards – delivered with a smiling face and showing off her Bristol & West Club vest to give the club some excellent publicity. Well done Sophie.
