How I started:
I started athletics at the age of eight years old. I was competing at the school’s sports day, and I was very successful, so another parent spoke to my dad and recommended that I go to the local athletics club. I really enjoyed it as I love the independent side of it and that it’s so quantifiable being whoever crosses the line first, wins, or whoever jumps the furthest wins!
My Greatest Achievement:
My greatest achievement is either my fourth place at the World Indoors, or my fourth place at the Commonwealth Games. I am incredibly proud of these feats as I started the Heptathlon event at the age of 18, which is a lot later than most other people so it’s taking time to develop the right motor skills to begin perfecting each event. I am excited to continue honing my skills and chipping away at my development!
My Greatest Challenge:
My greatest challenge was tearing my achilles at the Commonwealth Games holding camp along with a small hamstring injury too. I competed in the Commonwealth Games, and we re-evaluated the injury following the Commonwealth’s and unfortunately found out that this small Achilles injury was actually much larger, meaning I had to attend rehab across winter and continue training to heal this big injury. Following this rehabilitation, in the week leading up to the 2023 World Cup, I suffered a huge Hamstring tear during training which has left me out of athletics until at least Christmas of 2023!
Outside of athletics I love to cook, creating recipes, mixing up my meals, and always posting my meals to my Instagram! I also love reading, I read a lot of feminist literature, psychology and mindset, and then some non-fiction, loving the work by Bernadine Everisto! Going out for coffee with friends is a cornerstone of my leisure time as I don’t get the time to do it anywhere near as much as I’d like!
My Future Aspirations:
In the future I hope to score a gold medal in each of the four major championships. So these are the Olympics, World Championships, European Championships, and the Commonwealth Games. It would also be amazing to join the 5000 point club in the indoor Pentathlon, and get into the 7000 point club in the Heptathlon!
