A TEENAGER from Penryn will be Cornwall’s female representative at an athletics talent development course in Manchester later this year.

Emily Becconsall has been selected for the Talent Inspiration Programme which will take place over three days in September with 200 young athletes from around the UK taking part in workshops and practical sessions.

During her time on the course, the 13-year-old Truro School pupil will receive mentoring from experienced athletes.
