My biggest achievement to day would probably be winning the Commonwealth Youth Games in Samoa alongside my 10 national titles. I am fully hoping to take home a gold medal at the Commonwealth Games….
I am optimistic about the rest of the summer however, as I know I am playing well and putting in good, hard work. Hopefully this year I can push on and achieve my goals of winning another futures title and making the final of an ATP challenger event.
My biggest honour so far in my Career is being selected to represent Team GB in the Rio Paralympic games 2016 in the mens T54/ T53 wheelchair marathon. The race did not go to plan and finished 14th after a technical problem….
2017 has been an interesting year competitively where I have taken advantage of being able to enter senior events, as well as continuing to progress through the Under-14s and Under-15s. Fencing likes its age categories…..
Shelayna Oskan-Clarke represented Great Britain at the Rio Olympic Games where she reached the semi-finals. As the reigning British Champion, she hopes to retain her title and qualify for the World Championships in London 2017.
It was such an honour and amazing opportunity to have been selected to go to Rio Paralympics as part of the Paralympic Inspiration Programme. I took away so much from 6 days we had!
This back injury has been going on for a few months now, I believe originally I was diagnosed from an incident where my knee ‘gave way’ in a training session. We were doing a high intensity circuit in the sand pit and were all partnered off.
I have had an extremely successful athletics season in my final year at Loughborough University. I broke the Warwickshire county senior record with a distance of 66.96m which was selected as the best performance of the championships.
Follow your dreams. It’s an incredible feeling to say that i have reached my goal of becoming an Olympian and winning an Olympic medal. It is not an easy task otherwise everyone would do it however, the drive that you create from within the heart will get you through the tough days.
GLL support is massive to someone like me who competes in a mulit-discipline sport, and the support from GLL makes a massive difference in helping to alleviate some of the financial burden.
