Hello and a very warm welcome to my website.
Here you can follow my progress from my daily tweets, blogs and video diaries, all in the build-up to the 2016 Rio Olympics and beyond.
This website will give you some understanding of what it’ll take for me to get to the top of my game. The good, the bad, the everything in between.
I started my career as a high jumper in my high school age 14. My PE teacher encouraged me to try high jump as I was the tallest in the class. I didn’t even come close to winning my first competition which put me off high jump (I’m ultra competitive and highly driven by success!), but I stuck to athletics because I liked the sport and joined Hercules Wimbledon AC. Later my best friend introduced me to Discus who described them as ‘plates’. I had a go in a small group, beat everyone, never looked back. I have since changed clubs and have competed for Sutton AC and now my current club, Shaftesbury Barnet Harriers.
I have been ranked the UK number 1 Discus thrower since 2011 and ranked inside the top 3 since 2009. I am the 2009 European U23 Bronze medallist, a 2010 Commonwealth finalist and 3 time UK Champion. 2014 saw the arrival of the XX Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. Here I progressed and reached my goal thus becoming Commonwealth Bronze medallist. I had a great start to this year setting a new English record at 65.10m while in Australia and have been competing regularly in the Diamond League, with a best finish of 3rd at the London Anniversary Games. At the European Championships in Amsterdam, I produced the best performance ever by a British thrower. I am also proud to have achieved a lifetime ambition in August becoming an Olympian and competing at the Rio Olympic Games.
I have to thank GDM Hosting who have made this website possible for me, I would also like to thank Bridgeham Clinic and Adidas who have kept me in one piece and in perfect apparel for training and competition. I am very thankful for the help I have received from these guys over the years and appreciate the support they continue to show me.
So pleased to announce a new merge!
A new addition to the team is The Real Gym aka TRG in Chessington. TRG have some of the best equipment on the current market and I am very privileged to have them on board.
Thanks for visiting my site, keep checking back!
