“I am on the British Athletics World Class Performance Programme, and am considered as having genuine gold medal potential for a future Paralympic Games.

 

“Away from competing, I have been an active member of The Flyers disability sports club over the last 11 years and I am on the coaching staff at Chelmsford Sport & Athletics Centre.  At both I enjoy passing on my skills and experience to youngsters, both disabled and able bodied, who are at the beginning of their sporting careers, hopefully inspiring them to greater things.

 

“I have been a Chelmsford Sports Ambassador for the last 4 years, a post I still hold with great pride.  My Ambassador role, along with my role as a World Class Performance Programme athlete gives me the opportunity to speak to schools and at events and show that having a disability is not a hindrance to achievement and that we can all reach our goals with hard work and dedication.”
