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.

Here are some photos:

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.

Went to the D.S.E Regional championships at Chelmsford

It was really good to catch up with old friends from my Junior National days, I had a really good competition and very pleased with my performance

Silver in the 100m & 200m
Gold in the longjump

Even the rain drenching me in the 100m could not dampen my happiness.

My focus is now on Portugal and the IAADS European Championships in a couple of weeks which I am looking forward to

Wish me luck and keep everything crossed I will do my best!

First competition of the Season and had a good run out at Norwich

Times were not great but as Mum says its a marker to build on for the rest of the season.

I did the 100m, 200m and Longjump

Getting ready for the summer games, I will be doing two events, the 100m and 200m.

I was very lucky to be asked to do some promotion work for the games, and around Cambridge in lots of bus shelters and billboards is this picture of me!.

Competed for my club Cambridge and Coleridge in the Southern Women’s league at Cambridge, I did 3 events the 100m, 200m and Long jump. It was really nice to take part in a competition with my training group, I get a lot of support from them.

I did well, got a Seasons best in my long jump and good training for the Special Olympics Summer Games in Bath on 28.8.13 – Wish me luck!

I took part in the DSE Eastern Regional Championships at Chelmsford – It was only my second competition of the year but am really pleased with my performance.

First competition of the season I competed for the Club at Ipswich in the Southern Womens League

I did the Longjump (2.15) , 100m (15.7) and 200m (34.8).

Always good to get the first competition under way as a benchmark for times/distances. Mine were a little slow but only 1st competition, time to Improve by end of June for IAADS European Championships in Rome.

This was my last competition of the season and I ran the 100 and 200m winning both, I equalled my PB in the 100m but a little of the mark for my 200mb in a time of 33.09 (32.5psb)

Good close to a great year where I set new world records, got 5 Gold medals at Internationals and feel really happy and focussed for next year.

No more comps until later in the year (inside) but my training routine keeps going so drop back soon and see what I am up to.

Love
