NOW RANKED 3rd IN THE UK FOR 2010 BEHIND JESSICA ENNIS AND LOUISE HAZEL,IMMEDIATE REWARD FOR DOMINIQUE IS SELECTION FOR GREAT BRITAIN FOR THE COMBINED EVENTS EURO CUP IN TALINN,ESTONIA ON JUNE 26TH/27TH
Coming back from serious injury is a long haul,but taking your first National title can make it all worthwhile.
Dominique's return to top form saw her leap to 24th on the All-Time UK Heptathlon List with an substantial improvement to 5671 pts,some 266 in excess of her previous best.
Opening with 14.22 over 100H,she progressed to a 1m77 HJ,a very large heave onto her Shot PB at 13m47,ending Day One with a 24.19 200,only 3/100ths off her fastest.
Day Two has been hiccoughs day in the past,but these evaporated with a 6m25 PB in the Long,then a moderate 32m30 in the Javelin,by which time the title was almost in the bag - and a 2m36.44 PB over the 2 laps completed a memorable two days,both for Dominique and her support team of mother Clare,Debbie & Sasha,Lana and,latterly,Matt Field.
