Change of sport for me yesterday! The Rawlins Basketball team, of which I am a member, won their final last night at the Leicester Arena. It's great to compete on land for a change and our team are great friends and players. Well done all

Notts-Derby Senior Gold
Last weekend I competed in a senior gold tournament. I played mixed and women's doubles with players that I train with at Loughborough University. It is the first time I had played with them in a tournament and in the mixed we came second, losing to my women's doubles partner and her partner in 3 sets. In the doubles, my partner and I won it, beating a good senior pair in the semi final, and then going on to beat the current BUCS women's doubles champions in the final in 3 sets which was a very good result for us. Looking forward to the next competition. Thanks again to JHMT for supporting me!

European Junior Championships, Helsinki, Finland July 2018
Words cannot express how excited I am to have been selected to represent Great Britain at this major championship. Thank you to all who have supported me and a special thank you to my coach Jamie Evans. Can't wait to compete with this 30 strong team of 18u swimmers. This is my first European Juniors and I am hoping to learn from the older team members.

British Championships/Edinburgh International Swim Meet 2018
Relieved to have actually got to Edinburgh last week during such bad weather. The drive was a challenge! Pleased with my results however. A massive 9 sec PB meant that I was the 2nd fastest Junior (18 and under) 1500 free. A PB in the 400 free meant 3rd place in the Junior final and a 200 IM PB meant 2nd place in another Junior final. New PB times for 100 and 200 free. Finished a very tiring week with 4th in the 400 IM Open final. Not a PB but very close to the time I raced in Amiens.

Last week I travelled to Edinburgh for the British Swimming Trials. It was an extremely difficult journey getting there to say the least. I managed to make a couple of junior finals whilst I was there but overall it was a very hard meet. I've taken lots of things away from the meet and I'm looking forward to my next competition.

Thank You JHMT
I am extremely grateful to the JHMT for this grant and the huge support it will offer going into the upcoming track season. It will allow me to buy new equipment such as spikes, leggings, trainers and t-shirts aswell as going towards the cost of physio appointments. Once again a big thank you!

I would like to thank JHMT for this award! The award will help me to achieve my cricket dreams by paying for nets and coaching sessions in the near future, additionally, the award may help pay for transport costs for long journeys. Cricket can be a very expensive sport so this award is really appreciated and will go a long way. The upcoming season will be an exciting one as I hope to break into Rothley Park CC's First XI and this award will help me to do this. Once again thank you to the Joe Humphries Memorial Trust and those who donate as well as the judging panel for selecting me for this award!

Thank you Joe Humphries Memorial Trust for this award. I'm delighted to recieve this. This award will mainly help towards my training expenses throughout the year, I will also use some for kit and massage therapy. As injuries in swimming are very often due to the repetive nature of the strokes. Again thank you for the support!

The sessions have started and I try and fit in one really high quality strength and conditioning session each week. I have been learning some proper core strength exercises and I have learnt pretty quickly that any regular movement that is followed by a European country is going to be tough. So a plank is a plank - but a Turkish plank is super hard and a squat is a squat but a Bulgarian squat is even harder. Its all going well and I am starting to do some compound moves as well. The picture on this post is me stepping up on a box. Its a high box and in order to lift stuff safely i need to have proper stability and balance. I have not posted the video of me doing it as I am all over the shop!
