What attracted Ama to the More than Medals Programme?

The More than Medals programme was of interest as despite having planned and worked out options for a career post sport, actually getting close to that stage proved that the reality is a lot different and more difficult. The programme offers the opportunity to work with like minded people, gain qualifications and also confidence.
