Hi my name is Libbie I am 10 Years old.
I started the OCR sport 2 years ago with my mommy and love it. I train at Cliff Lakes in Tamworth and Phase 2 Gym, where I do my Martial Arts.
I have currently passed my Green Stripe belt and been awarded my Cadet Leader (MAIUK Level 3)
I also swim for Tamworth Swimming Club and a member at Drayton Park Golf Club where I play Golf.
This Year I really started to compete in races for OCR ( Obstacle Course Racing ), this is still hard to find races because I am still at a young age where a lot of races you have to be 14 and above.
So far this year I have been lucky and been able to run the Adults courses at Ram Run and Elements.
This was my First time running Spartan Races this year and was so excited when there was going to be a competitive Wave for 10 to 13yrs.
So far I have competed in the Spartan at St Clere picking up 2nd Girl position, Aston Down I came 4th Girl and then at Marston Lodge I came 1st Girl.
Back in February this year Spartan made me an ambassador for them.
Spartan have now announced they will be holding their first Kids World Championships in Neveda, America in November 2018.
To be able to compete in this you need to have qualified by coming 1st, 2nd or 3rd in their competitive waves.
I have had the exciting news I have qualified for this.
I would love to go and compete and represent the UK but also be able to show other Children what they could achieve and have so much fun with the sport.
I would like to try and raise the funds myself to be able to follow my dreams of becoming a good athlete for OCR and helping others try the sport.
I will fly out on Friday 16th November 2018 with 1 parent and we will drive to Laughlin Neveda. I will then compete on the Sunday and then fly straight home on the Monday.
Thank you so much for supporting me.
