In just under 2 weeks, I will be off to defend my 3 time title of European champion for a sport called biathle which is a continuous run, swim, run. i will be staying out there for 4 days with my dad and hopefully will still be able to keep my title. It is very nerve racking as i really want to do well. Then at the end of October i will be off to World Championships with both my parents in Dubai which is also for biathle, currently i am ranked number 1 in the world tour. A few years ago when i last did the World Championships in 2009 and I came 10th. I will update you on how i do afterwards!
Because i have been given free membership at the sports centre, myself and a few other athletes had been asked to display our talents by doing a display at festival place. We also competed against the public in ‘beat the athlete’ which was really funny, we either had to cycle or row, in the picture you can see, i am cycling against the mayoress of Basingstoke and she was really funny. I had a really good day!
A few days ago i did a fencing display at Asda with my fencing partner, Bradley who also does pentathlon. It was really fun because everyone was so interested in what we were doing and found it really impressive. We raised £20 pounds but what made me more happy was the fact a lot of people now know much more about pentathlon and know who I am now!
On March the 2nd I attended the Basingstoke Sports Awards. I was in the catagory for Junior ladies. I was one of 15 girls who were the best in Basingstoke and up for the award.
I was really excited when I was announced as the winner! I have also been invited to the Hampshire Sports Awards later this month, I will let you know how I get on.
Above is a picture of me with Rob Tobin, a 2012 Olympic hopeful in athletics.

Hi, I compete in Modern Pentathlon which are the 5 sports of running, swimming,pistol shooting,show jumping and epee fencing. I also compete in all of the sports individually. I started competing when I was 9 and have never really stopped. I train for around 15-20 hours a week but still manage to balance school and a social life. My aims for this year are to qualify for the World Biathle Championships, gain a selection on the National Pentathlon Squad and move up from England Talent Pool onto the World Class Talent Programme. The ultimate dream would be an olympic selection in 2016 or 2020.
