Anna is new to the GLL Sport Foundation this year and we are very proud to be supporting her. She is based in the Bath area and trains very hard for her success. SportsAid asked Anna what her typical training week looks like, “I usually do two track sessions a week, one aerobic and one sprint/speed endurance. Then, at the end of the week I do a hill or fartlek session with a long recovery run on Sunday. In addition to this I do at least one circuit on the days between my training sessions.”
This hard work and commitment has led Anna to achieve the following:
(July 2016) 2nd in 800m at European Youth Championships in Georgia, Tbilisi representing Great Britain for the first time.
(July 2017) 2nd in 800m (0.27s off gold) at Commonwealth Youth Games in Nassau, the Bahamas representing England for the first time. It was a competitive final which featured 5 of the world U18 top 12 ranked athletes including the world number 1.
