Imani Lansiquot, the second fastest British junior of all time, hopes to be an encouragement to young women and show that there is “more to life than where you are from or your background.”
It was August 2011, when I made the decision to put my career as a medical doctor on hold, to concentrate fully on my athletic training. I have had the fortune of representing my country at several of the world’s global championships.
I would like to say a huge thank you to GLL for supporting Jacob in his quest to become a GB Para Swimmer. Since Jacob has been supported by GLL he has competed in the CP Nationals in Nottingham where he won 5 medals.
After being inspired watching the 2012 Paralympic Games in London, I attended a para-fest in December of that year where I was tested by Great Britain Cycling Team coaches.
I want to reach more world level finals in Vert and maybe start to podium. I also want to compete next year at world level in Skate Park and hopefully make it out to Tokyo in this discipline for the UK.
I started triathlon nearly 3 years ago now. I had previously run cross country and played hockey for my university (so not swum competitively or even picked up a bike!)
My short term goals, for next season, will be to be selected for the GB team for the World U20 Championships in Finland and to improve my personal bests for 400m, 800m and 1500m.
