Sporting History

When I was at school I competed in lots of different sports including playing hockey and rugby at a good level. When I first started in athletics my best events were middle distance and steeplechase. I only started doing 400m hurdles to improve my steeplechase!

My aims are to keep progressing as an athlete at the 400m hurdles and 400m and improve my PBs, and at some point to represent Wales at the Commonwealth Games, and to get my degree in physics and engineering.
