This evening Mum, Dad and I went to the Living Sport Award Ceremony in St Ives. I have been nominated in two categories the Living Sport Sports Performer of the Year and the Living Sport Disability Sport Performer of the Year. I was shortlisted for the Disability Sports performer which was a great honour as I have won this for the last two years. This year the award was rightly won by Tom Baty who won 4 gold medals in Athens for powerlifting. I was luckly to see Tom do his lifting in Athens and he was great, really proud for him and his family – Well done Tom.

The winner of the Living Sports, Sport performer of year was Louis Smith, good luck for the Olympics Louis, and my fellow C&C club member Ben Kelk was runner up, very deserved Ben.

We had a lovely evening and I was very pleased to be runner up, and also very happy that my athletic club Cambridge and Coleridge won the award for Community Club of the year.

Oh well enough rest now back to training at the weekend I am off to Lee Valley for a squad day.

This evening I went to the Cambridge News Community Awards 2011 at Downing College. We had a lovely reception and then went to the “The Howard Theatre” all the category winners were very deserving and had done very brave things.

I would like to send a big thank you to the Cambridge News readers for voting me the Young Achiever winner and to Anglia Ruskin for sponsoring this category, I am very lucky to have won an award for something I love doing – thank you to everybody.

Some pictures will be posted shortly

I would like to say a big thank you to South Cambridgeshire District Council for the award they made to me under their Elite Athlete Scheme.

On Wednesday 17 November me and Mum went to the East of England Showground for the presentation of the “Living Sport” Sports Awards 2010.  I had been nominated in the Disabled Sports Performer of the Year award, sponsored by Huntingdon Regional College.   This is an award I won last year so I did not expect to be successful again and Mum and I just went along to see all the local sporting champions.

When the Disabled Sports Performer award came on I had been shotlisted with a number of disabled swimmers and another athlete.  To my surprise I was given the award – for the second year running – this was great and capped off a wonderful year.

I was also nominated in the Sports Performer of the Year category which included medal winners from the Commonwealth games.  This was won by Commonwealth Games gold medal gymnast Luke Folwell. 

 There were lots of famous sports people at the awards and nominated for awards these included gymnasts Louis Smith and Luke Folwell (who won Sports Performer of the Year), Commonwealth Games gold medal heptathlete, Louise Hazel and bronze medal heptathlete Grace Clements, and World Snooker Champion Neil Robertson.  It was a fantastic evening.

 To round off the evening Mum won a prize in the raffle.  The man presenting the raffle prizes teased Mum saying she had to run to the stage like me to receive her prize.

On Thursday 11 November my Mum, Dad and I attended the Star Awards dinner at Cambridge Regional College where I was a student last year.  I was nominated by my former course tutor, Michele for my hard work on the course and my sporting achievements outside college.

It was nice to be back at CRC seeing Michele and some of the students from my old course.  We had a lovely four course meal in the Park Restaurant cooked for us by students studying catering.  It was a wonderful evening.

I had my photograph taken with all of the Star Award Winners and the photographer recognised me from the BBC Sports awards last December.

On Monday 1 November my athletics club held it’s annual awards.  I was awarded the “Best Performance, Sprints” trophy which was presented to me by the club President, Mary Holmes.
