Being on the Talent ID Programme, and having access to the numerous opportunities that come with it, have enabled me to progress in athletics in ways i hadn’t imagined before this year. One of the best things is that the whole team regards you as a person and not just an athlete- they work their hardest to ensure that your performance in sport and your personal enjoyment come hand in hand.
