Thank you

Had a really good competition at Chelmsford, and really pleased with my times:

100m = 15.31
200m = 33.5
Longjump 2.47

Need to do some work on my Longjump!

Great to meet up with Hettie, who is great competition.

Really pleased with my times they will be good basis for Florence. Lots more training on Longjump!

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
100m, 200m, 400m, Longjump and Triathlon (100m, longjump & 3kg shot)

I was also very proud to be honored with the female performer of the games.

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

Following on from my good start at the DSE regional championships in Chelmsford, I has just returned from the IAADS (International Association of Athletes with Down Syndrome) European Championships in Portugal.

Team GB had a really good competition and I am very pleased with my 5 gold medals for all the events I competed in, 100m, 200m, 400m, Longjump and for the first time the Triathlon (100m, Longjump and Shot). Mum suggested I try the Triathlon as they include my events and I am so pleased I did as I set a new world record for this event, as well as retaining my world records in all my other events.

Team GB came fourth overall (1st Portugal, 2nd Italy and 3rd Turkey), after the competition Mum, Dad and I stayed on for a few days to explore the beautiful city of Porto – really good and the port is very nice I liked the White port (but only after the competition had finished!)

My next competition is now the Mencap Nationals in Manchester in June.

I was very lucky to be a guest of the Special Olympics at the BBC Sports Personality of the year in Leeds on Sunday 15.12.13, what a fantastic night, everywhere I looked their were famous sports personalities, Dad recognized more than me, we had a great time, first we went to a civic reception, then the show (our seats were 6 rows from the front) and after the show onto the after party, Dad had a job to keep up with me!

Met my idol Jessica Ennis and lots of other really fantastic and inspirational athletes, here are a few pictures:














The Eastern Team did really well at the Bath Summer Games, I competed in the 100m, 200m Long Jump and 4X100m relay.

Some great performances, I am thrilled with my gold medal in the 4 x 100m Relay well done to all the girls Tara, Sarah, and Hayley.

Big thanks to all at Bath who made it such an exciting competition.
