How I got started?: I attended a P2P Day and from there I was selected by Shelly Holroyd from England Athletics to compete in wheelchair racing. This led to me being invited to another Talent Day organised by England Athletics, at this Talent Day I was classified as a T34 racer, which is for people with celebral palsy like myself. In my first year of racing I broke the British Records for 200m, 400m and 800m. In the second season I started training with Jenny Archer, it was during this time that I was selected to represent Great Britain at the London 2012 Paralympic Games for the 100m and 200m
