Sunday 10th September
An early start this morning being up at 3am ready to catch the early morning flight back home. Whilst on the flight I have had time to reflect on the amazing week that I've had at the WAKO Junior and Cadet European Kickboxing Championships 2017 in Skopje, Macedonia. So proud of myself having retained my European Kickboxing Title this time in Junior (16-18yrs) Girls Light Continuous -60kg along with Vice European Champion and Bronze. Coming home with Gold, Silver and Bronze is my best ever World or European Championships in Kickboxing so far and I'm already looking forward to the busy year ahead in my sporting career. This year has been special also as I had the honour of being the Junior Girls Captain for Team GB supporting the other GB members through their wins and loses. Also after my win at the European Championships I am now ranked World Number 1 in Junior Girls (16-18yrs) -60kg Light Continuous. I'd just like to take this opportunity to thank all of those who have supported me over the years to help me get to this level and achieving European Champion. First of all I'd like to thank my coaches and teammates at Evolution Martial Arts, my Mum and Dad for all of their input, advice, extra hours of work and believing in me every step of the way. Next I'd like to thank WAKO Team GB, the President, Head Coach, Coaches and other team members. Finally I'd like to thank LEAP (Lincolnshire Elite Athlete Programme), Fogarty Quits and Pillows Limited, Leg Up, POOBI and anyone who has helped me for their continued support in allowing me to get here and chase my dreams.
