I started my journey in athletics at the age of 10 when my mum began coaching me. I tried a few different events including running and jumping and finally settled on throwing. I was awarded my first England and Team GB vest at the age of 15 and from there, I went from strength to strength, topping rankings and competing in competitions, including the Commonwealth Youth Games and the World Youth Championships.
I broke the British U20 record in 2007 and the next year I became the first Brit to win Gold at the Winter Throwing Cup. I then made history again in 2009, by becoming the first British woman to win gold at the U23 European Championships, something that I hold very dear to my heart. I also gained my first senior GB vest in the same year!
Since then, i have repeated topped British rankings and claimed numerous British Championship medals with my latest achievement making the final top 8 in both the Shot Putt and the Discus at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games. I am now in training to compete at the Olympic Games in Tokyo in 2020.
In my spare time I really enjoy shopping with friends and have a love for doing hair and make-up. Visiting schools to inspire children to follow their dreams is a really big passion of mine, that I love being a part of.
