It was the most nervous I’ve been before a race.  The starter warned all the girls that if anyone had a false start they would be disqualified.  It was a tough race in very hot conditions.

Mum said it would be a Trivial Pursuits question in the future:

Q. What was the first national anthem played at the first World Games for Athletes with Down Syndrome.

A. God Save The Queen

I won Gold – it was fantastic.  When I stood on the podium and they played the National Anthem I felt so proud, everybody cheered and Mum cried.

The World Champion - 100m

Tomorrow it’s the long jump and possibly the 400m.
