Sport: Long-distance running
Running has been a serious hobby of mine since the age of 6. I was inspired by the people around me I would see getting so much enjoyment out of the sport. Currently, my main focus is on 5k and 10k, but I also do cross country throughout the winter. I currently hold a 5k PB of 16:37 and a 10k PB of 34:38.
My biggest achievement within the sport so far is probably being ranked 2nd U20 in the UK for 10k. I would also say another proud moment would be coming back from a year of injury and being more determined than before. Injury is the hardest part of being an athlete and to have learnt so much from the process is something I am proud of.
In the near future I would like to make the England U23 team, a goal I am getting ever closer to, and in the slightly more distant future I hope to become part of Team GB. These are both dreams I will continue to work hard for. The thing that keeps me motivated and determined is my love for being active, especially running.
Sport: 100m/200m sprinter
My inspiration for sprinting started whilst playing football at the age of 12. I was the fastest in every team I played for. I then decided at 14 to train at Harrow A.C this only lasted a few weeks before I returned to football.
Three years later I started athletics focused on my first season. Within a few months, I was the fastest in the county (Middlesex) and competed at English schools. My greatest achievements so far have been ranked the 9th fastest 100m U18 athlete in England, and the 11th fastest in Great Britain (2018) with a PB of 10.88.
I am now focusing on implementing strength and conditioning into my training regime for the first time. As well as working on speed fitness and technique, I am aware that to become elite sprinter lifting weights effectively is a necessity. With Trojan Fitness I hope this will push my limits to the next level in reaching the GB team.
