A young Nantwich athlete is heading for an amazing national double.

Sprinter Hayley Jones hopes to qualify for Team GB’s London Olympics squad – and land a place in the finals of Miss England!

The 23-year-old former Malbank High student has made it through to the Miss North West Final after winning through the regional finals.

Hayley also faces a busy schedule trying out for the Olympic Team to represent Great Britain in London 2012.

And she showed her intentions this weekend by winning the 100m and 2oom finals at the Cheshire County Championships in new county record times.

“I am going for the 200m and 4x100m for the Olympics,” she said.

“I will be taking part in the trials which are televised on June 24, and then will find out if I have made it in early July.”

Before then she will be vying with 19 other girls in the Miss North West finals at the Playhouse Theatre in Preston on May 26 and 27.

Hayley will undergo a 3-hour interview and then rehersals before four rounds – eveningwear, summerwear, sportswear, and an eco round where finalists wear a dress made from recycleable materials.

The public vote is open now until May 26 and will count as one judge in the final.

“The point of my campaign is to widen my profile so that I can help get young kids into sports,” said Hayley.

“I have done a variety of events such as coaching and appearances in schools/sportshall events. The competition supports the charity ‘Beauty with a purpose’ and therefore the aim is to use the title to do something positive in the community.

“This year it is working with Brent Knoll School for Special Needs, so I am organising a raffle in which the prizes include various Great Britain vests and jackets signed by me and my Olympic team-mates.

“The competition is a Beuty Paegent but they are looking for the whole package including intelligence and talent.

“I have just completed my degree in Mathematics and am predicted a first with all my marks this year being well over the 70% required. So I am hoping that I can demostrate that!”

To support Hayley, vote for her by texting MISS NW07 to 63333 or calling 0901 307 0045 and entering 07 when prompted.

Calls and texts both cost 50p and people can vote up to 10 times per day.
