I came back from Mencap National Champs in Watford late last night, IT WAS AMAZING! :D
Me and my dad travelled down on Friday morning, it took four hours to get there, we stayed in the Premier Inn :)
On Saturday I felt really excited to see everyone from France and was double excited to compete!
My 1st event of the day was the 100m! it was me and two other girls; Chloe and Martina who went to France, it was a very close race, I came 1st with a good time of 14.2! It was my first track gold medal! Then I went straight to long jump, I won a sliver with 3.40m!
After my long jump, I got the chance to catch up with mostly everyone from who went to France, it was great to see them!
My last event was the 200m, I took gold with a brand new p.b, 29.69!!! Finally under 30 seconds in the 200m, It was unexpected! I have been training hard on my 200m’s!
After the medal presentation’s and saying goodbyes were over, I went home very happy! Two gold medals, U17 Champion in 100m and 200m and a sliver in long jump! And the hard work has paid off!
I am now training for Nationwide Junior Athletics Championships in Preston/Blackpool next week!
