Story

My dream has always been to represent my country at the Olympic Games. Originally I was a 100m hurdler and have represented my country as a Youth, Junior and Senior on an International Level. Achieving National Records and Titles.

In 2013 I relocated to Sheffield to train with Jessica Ennis-Hill and learn from the best. I was on target and 2 weeks out from competing and gaining the Olympic Qualifying time for Rio 2016 when I walked into the gym for my session, but unfortunately came out on a stretcher and in an Ambulance.

I suffered career threatening injuries and after 4years of 4 surgeries and rehabilitation I was told I would never be able to hurdle again and my Olympic Dream came to a stop. I decided in that hospital bed that this was not the end and I needed another sport that could take me to the Olympics.

What I am trying to do has not been done before in such a short time frame and after cycling on the Velodrome for just 7weeks to date I need as much support as possible in order to purchase a Sprint Track Bike to both train and compete on.

My journey has definitely not been straight forward and at times has brought me a lot of lows then highs, but getting to the Olympics isn't meant to be easy. Please help fund my dream and my bike so that I can achieve the qualifying times needed to get fully on the GB Squad and on the flight to Tokyo.
