I am a current trampoline gymnast and have been a member of the Great Britain team for the last 16 years winning Euorpean and World Championship gold medals along the way.

My sporting journey began aged five at a local sports centre in Bridgwater, Somerset. I was very lucky that I was able to do lots of sports and activities growing up, including rugby, hockey, dancing, athletics and more, but trampoline was always my favourite! I continued with most sports until age 15 when I was selected for my first International. After this, I decided trampoline was the sport I wanted to spend more time doing. A few years later, after leaving college, and in my last event as a junior, I won gold at the World age group championships.

Since then, I have won both World and European Championship and World Cup medals and most recently secured Great Britain their first quota place for the Tokyo Olympic Games after qualifying to the final of the 2019 World Championships. Like most athletes, the journey in elite sport has not been an easy road and I have worked through many challenges including several long injury periods, low confidence, skill confusion and mental blocks but each challenge has provided a fresh perspective and appreciation for all the ‘small wins’ in training and competition- and approach to life outside the bubble of elite sport!

Around competition and training I have really enjoyed working with young people in various mainstream and alternative education provisions and recently graduated from the Open University with a Bsc Psychology degree.

Giving Back

I have always enjoyed supporting young people in various settings- but especially through sport. I enjoy supporting younger athletes working through barriers such as mental blocks and low confidence and enjoy coaching too.       

Why did you want to join the More than Medals programme?

I wanted to join the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust to be part of a team supporting young people to develop skills and experience to help them achieve their goals and beyond, as well as continuing to learn and progress my own skills and experience.
