This weekend, I had an amazing time at the English Schools Athletics Championships where I was proud to be representing team Essex.
For my competition, the weather conditions were very difficult to contend with,the rain just didn’t stop. Although the weather was one of the worst I have ever had to vault in, it did give me the experience of having to compete in heavy rain and cold conditions. The amazing support from Team Essex was incredible and helped to keep me motivated and positive through the wind and rain.
The result ended with me finishing in third place; the first podium position I have achieved at English Schools, with Team Essex finishing second. I had a brilliant weekend away and I am looking forward to hopefully returning next year.
A big thankyou to the team managers and fellow athletes that were so supportive throughout the whole weekend!
