Story

I've been doing kayak slalom for ten years. It's been an unbelievable journey, and it's given me highs and lows I couldn't get anywhere else. My mission as an athlete is to enjoy the ride, and share with others the enriching experiences I get mentally and physically from racing this incredible sport.

If someone came up to you and offered you a gold medal on the street, chances are you'd say yes. If the person then said, you can have this medal in exchange for 10,000 hours of your life, countless weeks away from home, and you will fail hundreds of times before you finally succeed, would you still say yes?"

This is my first year racing as a member of the GB Senior team for World Cups #2, #3 and #4. After an incredible and mind-blowingly intense selection series in April, the teams have been decided and I will be racing with my name on the side of my boat, like I've dreamed of for the last few years. The World Cups cost £350 each, and I want to raise the funds to make these races possible. I've loved the water since I was small, and I finally have an opportunity to race across the world for GB.

I think sport is an essential way to learn some of the most important lessons in life, and I try to maintain an ethic of taking absolute responsibility and ownership of my training and racing. I want to be able to put everything on the table, and display in three races the work I've put in to be the best I can be.
