Amy is world under-18 silver medallist in the 100m and 200m, despite still having two years left in the age group.

Her hero is one of the all-time athletics greats, and although she would like to emulate his achievements she's keeping her feet firmly on the ground.

"My sporting hero is Jesse Owens," said Amy.

"I really admire him for going to Germany and competing at the Olympics when Hitler was in charge and overcoming all that adversity."

LAST week AW revealed that Amy Spencer had quit the sport, with the athletics future of fellow sprinter Vernicha James also in doubt. So it was heartening to hear performance director Dave Collins promise to try and reduce teenage drop out rates.

"If athletes fall off the conveyor belt we won't just say 'see ya', but will keep tabs on them and try to help them back on," he said. "The new system will see us pushing from below and pulling from above."
