“I am a member of the Flyers and Chelmsford Athletics Club.  I have been competing, winning medals, and breaking records in Discus, Javelin and Shot on the Disability Athletics circuit since 2008.  I represented my country at the JWAS World Junior Games in Dubai in 2011 where I won Silver in the U18 Discus.  In 2013 I competed at the International German Disability Champs and won Gold with strong competition including a 2012 Paralympian.  I have been selected onto the British Athletics World Class Performance Programme, and am considered as having Gold medal potential for a future Paralympic Games.

 

“Away from competing, I am an active member of the Flyers disability sports club, where my athletic achievements are hopefully inspiring many of the younger members and their parents by showing them what can be achieved by people with disabilities when they are given the opportunity and have the desire.  I am also on the coaching staff at Chelmsford Sports and Athletics Centre, where I am passing on my skills and experience to young able-bodied children who are at the beginning of their sporting careers.  Finally, I have been a Chelmsford Sports Ambassador for the last three years – a post I hold with great pride, which allows me to attend specific events designed to encourage able-bodied and disabled children to get into sport.”
