Norfolk shot putter Sophie McKinna has just missed out on qualification for the Olympics.
The 21-year-old from Great Yarmouth put on her own meeting at a soggy UEA in Norwich in a last-ditch bid to make it to Rio and threw a personal best in the process.
Unfortunately, she fell just short of the 17.75m needed to qualify though. Despite the setback, Sophie is optimistic about the future.

This has been a fantastic experience organising my own competition, very stressful but it's been worth it definitely. The weather conditions weren't great but that's no excuse.
Unfortunately I was only slightly off it, but maybe next time.

A man's been jailed for life for the murder of Great Yarmouth father-of-two Andrew McGowan.
18-year-old Warren Ricardo Blake was found guilty following a four week trial at Norwich Crown Court.
His co-defendant 22-year-old Tevin Birmingham was found guilty of manslaughter and will be sentenced in September.
The court heard how Blake and Birmingham were involved in a heated confrontation with Mr McGowan over drugs, which ended with the 33-year-old being stabbed five times at a flat in Dickens Court in Nov 2015.
"This case exemplifies drug-related violence at its most serious: a man has lost his life as a result of a situation which needn’t have escalated to this level. I accept that Mr McGowan had his own criminal motives when he attended the flat that night. However, this does not justify the outcome in any way”.

There's been a spate of walk-in burglaries in Great Yarmouth over the past three months.
Norfolk Police are warning people to lock their doors after more than half recorded involved insecure properties.
Superintendent Roger Wiltshire said, "The chance of becoming a victim of a burglary remains low, however, you can reduce this risk dramatically by taking some simple steps.
"I would advise for people to get into the habit of locking their doors. Especially when you go to bed or if you are going to spend some time in your back garden.”
