Who are you?

I am a Great Britain athlete specialising in the hammer throw

How did you get into sport?

I played a range of sports when I was younger (tennis, hockey, football, squash) but my favourite was athletics. I enjoyed all events, but found that my strongest events were the throws. At 12 I tried the hammer and showed promise so continued to practice. At 15 I was selected to represent England schools and from here specialised in the hammer throw.

What have you achieved?

2x commonwealth games (4th place at Glasgow), European U23 bronze medallist, represented GB at European championships 2012


How does psychology influence your performance?

I believe that the body works at its best when the mind is in tune. Therefore, I always strive to be mentally aware and prepared, as well as physically in both training and competition.
