Athlete and Sports Personality

I have some very exciting news to share with you, I have a sponsor “Cambridge Commodities Ltd” who have given me a substantial donation which will be a great help with competition expenses especially as I am fundraising for South Africa in 2015 to go to the world games and need to raise approx £4000.

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.
