Tell us about your best memory of your athletic career:
I have had a lot of good experiences during my time running but one of the best has to be winning the National Road Relays team title for my club a few years back. Our club had very strong A and B teams for our age group that season, so it was always extremely competitive to prove that we could represent the A team for each team relay event we participated in. Off a strong individual leg performance from myself in the A team at the Southern Road Relays where our team came second, I was told that I was representing the A team at the National Road Relays three weeks later. On the day of the race I woke up feeling ill which increased the nerves on the day as we all had the title on our mind. I was told I was the final leg which is what I wanted as I thought the pressure of it would lead to me performing better. Our team warmed up together, an hour before we started but it felt like the time went a lot faster and before I knew it our first leg was off with the rest of the race. He ended up passing onto our second leg in a close third place with first and second just ahead by a couple seconds. Our second leg came through with the lead of about ten seconds and I knew what I had to do even though I did not feel great. With 200m to go and a sizeable lead I knew as long as I got to the finish line in one piece we did it. I turned the final corner and sprinted the last 100m passing hundreds of people either side of the tape cheering including my teammates, my mum and other people from my club, which was an incredible feeling and boosted me towards the finish. I ran through the tape with my hands in the air feeling elated as it was announced our club won the title. It was a moment I won’t be forgetting anytime soon!
My ultimate goal is to represent my country internationally and hopefully progress further from there!
