Nationals x2, Junior Europeans x1, Holiday!
It was just my luck when I sprained my ankle two days before my first event at the Junior Elite Championships in Southampton, unfortunately I injured it during weights on Friday which caused me to withdraw from 3 out of 4 of my competitions.
I saw my physio 9 times in 6 days to work on it so that I could compete on Thursday but somehow I did and on platform I came 1st in the prelims and dropped to 3rd in finals which was really annoying as they take the top 2 to go to Europeans or it’s up to the managers discretion. The next week I competed in the Senior Elite Championships in Southend where my synchro partner and I came 5th in the 3m Synchro competition. It was in Southend where i found out that the manager had selected me to go to the Junior European Championships in Belgrade. I ended up 3rd which i am very pleased with because it is not as good as last year but i have had a really tough year with injuries this year. Now I have had an operation on my hand to fuse the 3rd CM
C joint which will hopefully fix the long term injuries! I am in a cast and just arrived back from Barcelona where I was supposed to be competing but ended up just going for a holiday! My coach and I timed it so that I would only be missing the start of training and so i can just build my strength in the time off and start training up again for another busy year!
