About

My story

I loved sport as a child, normally copying anything my brother did, mostly to his annoyance. The sports I tried were all quite different, from jujitsu to football and roller hockey, which massively helped my skating ability later on in life. By the time I was 12, I had discovered short track speed skating after being spotted at a party. I went to my local club in Solihull where I instantly felt at home and trained twice a week where possible. Within three years, I had made the national team and had the chance to represent my country. So at the age of 15 I move to nottingham to follow my dream. It’s been an amazing journey but with sacrifice and hard work it has taken me many places all over the world.

In 2008 I had my first major senior taste of success; winning a gold European championship medal in the ladies relay. I later won a bronze 1500m individual medal at the European Championships 2012.

I then qualified for the winter games in 2014 with my highest result 16th in the 500m event. The experience was amazing and it has heighten my drive for success next time. Now the program is developing and adapting with an even better support system for us; the only way up!
