About Me

Hi!

I am 19 years old and compete internationally on the RS:X Olympic Windsurfer. I am current Youth World Champion and I also won the title in 2016, and 2014!

 

I have always dreamt of winning an Olympic medal. I love all sports but in the end I chose windsurfing. My mum competed in the 1992 and 1996 Olympics in Windsurfing and now my brother and I also compete. I love it, I mean sometimes I wonder why I'm going out on my own in 3 degrees on a grey November day but the close racing, great venues, brilliant competitors and the goal of an Olympic medal make it all worthwhile in the end.  

 

I left school at 16 and since have been successfully studying sports nutrition and sports science online.   This allowed me to start competing full time on the World Cup circuit and just 2 years later at the time of writing I am currently ranked no 10 in the Senior World rankings and No 1 Under 19 in the World.   

 

My goal is the 2020 Olympics in Japan.  I will be age 21 by then so my goal in 2018 and 2019 is to keep gaining the experience of winning International races and training with different groups from all over the World.  In 2018 and 2019 this will be my plan.  In 2020 its time to put it all together, have a lot of fun and make it work to achieve my Golden dream.   So there really is not long to make this dream become a reality. In setting up this website I am hoping to make more people aware of my goal and also show that anythings possible!

 

Funding my travel and equipment has been hard and I rely on my parents and some lottery funding via British Sailing.  I have worked and am working with some product sponsors to successfully gain exposure through social media. I hope that in 2018 I will be able to announce a major sponsor who I can work with to achieve my Golden dream. There are always advertising opportunities on my sails, board and wetsuits and in my social media posts. So if you know anyone who might be interested in this dream opportunity please contact me!
