I am thrilled and excited to be able to share with you that UKSA and INAS are trailing the introduction of two new classifications one for Autism and the other for Down Syndrome this coming summer in Paris for the INAS Summer Games. This is a huge step and one I hope will lead to the paralympics inclusion of athletes with Down Syndrome.

I have been selected to represent GB at the Games in Paris. I will work really hard and do my best.

Soooooooo Excited

UKSA announce British Team heading to Paris to first Inas European Summer Games

I have just returned from Portugal, representing GB at the IAADS European Championships in Porto.

Great games I won 5 x gold medals in:
100m, 200m, 400m, longjump and multi-event (100m, long jump and shot-put) Really pleased with my Performance.

I was very lucky to attend the Special Olympics Summer Games – In Sheffield.

I competed in the 100m, 200m 4 x 100m relay and Longjump. Good competition but rained all week. Had a great 4 x 100m relay, and we won Gold.

I had a great competition at the Mencap Nationals, I competed in the 400m and 200m, and I set a new IAADS world records for the 200m = 31.84

I am look forward to the Special Olympics Summer Games in August in Sheffield

Please help me and other athletes with Down Syndrome achieve our dreams and get to the paralympics

I have just returned from South Africa with Team GB, we had a great competition and came 5th overall, but we were thrilled with our medal haul of 5 gold medal and 3 bronze medals.

I was really pleased with all of my events and got a season best performance in all, thrilled to get 5 gold medals in my events

This year has seemed really long as my big competition is not until November when I go with the rest of the GB team to South Africa for the IAADS world Championships.

I am grateful to all my peers who competed at the DSE Regional Championships in May and Mencap Nationals in June, to give me some really good competition in prep for the games. At the DSE I came third to Hollie and Hettie and again in Mencap.

I am now stepping up my training and hope to do my best for club and coach.

I was really pleased to hear that team GB did so well in LA for the Special Olympic and great to hear that St Albans athlete did so well. I was there in spirit watching from the hoarding!

Went to the Mencap National Championship in Manchester – 28.6.14

Really excited to be running on the same track used in the Commonwealth games. Still recovering from the games in Porto so only did the 100m and 200m and came third.

Pleased with my performance on the back on Porto and now focusing on South Africa in 2015
