I grew up in Manchester and have always loved sports. I first realised I was good at sports when I started doing cross country for school when I was 8 years old. I won my first cross country for my primary school and continued to win until year 6. When I was 10 I started to play football and was scouted for Rochdale academy where I played as a striker for 5 years. I began training for athletics when I was 11 to keep fit for football during the summer. I realised I really enjoyed athletics so I carried on doing long jump and sprinting alongside football. I fractured my pelvis when I was 14 which put me out for 3 months. When I came back I tried a new event (triple jump) and within 3 months became the best u15 in the country. I carried on doing athletics and football for the next 2 years. Playing for Manchester city and Burnley academy, also becoming the best u17 jumper in the country. When I was 16 I quit football to focus just on athletics and have been doing athletics ever since. The next year I came second at England u20s which meant I got to represent England at the Welsh international where I came second. When I was 18 I became the best u20 triple jumper in the country, but after this I had to have knee surgery which put me out for over a year. The next year I sprinted and the year after that I returned to triple jump, winning silver in the England u23 championships. Last year, I returned to full fitness and won gold at the England u23 championships. I also tried sprinting for the first time and made the semi-finals of the British championships. Next year I plan to continue sprinting and triple jumping and hope to make the Olympic team for the first time.
My dream is to one day win at the Olympics and become the best triple jumper in the world.
