Great Western Runners

 Now my season has finished, i thought i'd give you a brief report of what i achieved.

This year has been incredibly frustrating - an injury to my back caused all sorts of problems and all of my funding was used to fund physio and chiropractic care. That said I did improve my pb to 43.6 over 300m and almost equalled my pb over 100m. I also placed in bronze position in the South West Indoor Championships over 60m.

The thing im most proud off this season is my sportshall athletics achievement. This year I attended the UK finals with Team Avon and for the 4th consecutive year I won the UK Speed Bounce Title - I'm actually the first female in history to ever achieve 4 UK title and only the 2nd athlete ever in sportshall's 25 year history!!  I managed to bounce 95 in 30 seconds, missing the UK record by 2!! I'm now too old to do sportshall, but i've already been invited to be an assistant team manager by the Avon Manager and i'm greatly looking forward to this.

Im now coached 100% by Alastair Abrams and winter training has started. Im hoping to remain injury free and thrive this winter. Al has set me tough targets but i'm willing to work hard to achieve them. I really want to be back competing at the top!!


Thank you again for your continued funding, its a fantastic help.

 Kind regards
