My name is Lorna I am in training for the World Masters Indoor Track & Field Championships in South Korea in March 2017.
I am set to compete in the shot putt, hammer and discus.
I am a member of the Royal Sutton Coldfield Athletics Club.
Representing my country will be a dream come true and an honour.
I am keen to hear from anyone that might be interested in sponsoring me. As I have to fund all travel, accommodation and food costs.
I have notched up a string of awards since taking up athletics as a teenager, but competing at the highest level as a masters athlete, takes a different type of dedication.
Most people find things harder as they get older, so I have to be really focussed. Competing in the World Masters Indoor Track & Field Championships in Daegu will be a dream come true.
I was an extremely keen athletic during my school days and represented England as a junior in international competitions and Birchfield Harriers in the senior league as a shot putter and pentathlete.
Then I decided to have a break from competitive sport, but continued to keep fit.
When the opportunity came along to take part in the Masters Athletics League for the Royal Sutton Coldfield Athletics Club, I jumped at the chance - and I’ve never looked back.
My other recent achievements include:
Second in the British Masters Athletics Championships 2016 for Discus
Welsh Masters Champion 2016 for Shot
Scottish Athletics National Masters Champion 2016 for Shot
Scottish Athletics National Masters Champion 2016 for Discus.
All donations gratefully received, many thanks in advance.
