ALI Young fin­ished as first Bri­tish woman home on her in­ter­na­tional de­but at last week’s Euro­pean 24-Hour Cham­pi­onships in Toulouse.

The Amer­sham per­sonal trainer (pic­tured) made her GB de­but in the event, in which run­ners from across Eu­rope com­peted to see who could cover the most dis­tance around a 1.12km loop cir­cuit in 24 hours.

Be­fore the race the Chiltern Har­rier said she would just be happy to be a scor­ing mem­ber of a GB women’s team, but she ex­ceeded all ex­pec­ta­tions by beat­ing all her team­mates, as well as much of the rest of the field of 82, to fin­ish as 18th best lady over­all, hav­ing cov­ered just over 215km in 24 hours.
