OCRA backs local athlete


A Ramsey-based international corporate and trust services provider is backing a local athlete as she continues her preparations for next year's Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.


OCRA (Isle of Man) Limited has sponsored hurdler Hannah Riley to the tune of £300.


A grateful Hannah said, "The money will make a very real difference in the run-up to the games next year.


"It will help fund my travel expenses to compete in more off-Island competitions, such as the inter-counties meeting in Bedford in late August and a track and field event in Blackpool this September."


Competing in the women’s 100m hurdles at last month's NatWest Island Games in Bermuda, Hannah brought home a silver medal for the Isle of Man, swelling her medal collection to 19.
