Joylyn Saunders-Mullins won a hat-trick of silver medals for Great Britain in the European Veteran Championships in Poznan, Poland.
The veteran athlete from Letchworth Garden City was competing in the women's 50 to 54 age group.
Her three silvers came in the 200m, 400m and 4x400m relay.
A season's best of 62.67 was not enough to win the 400m as she was beaten by two-hundredths of a second for first place.
Another season's best of 27.78 came in the 200m where she was beaten by only one-hundredth of a second.
In both these races Joylyn was only second to former Olympian Dagmar Fuhrmann of Germany.
