Motivating for the Future

Thursday, 7th October, 2010

I really enjoy working to motivate young people through sport and overcoming adversity, in this technological era.

I had a great day at Fairfax School, Birmingham, last week, giving presentations, running focus groups, joining in with zone hockey and opening the new Arts Building.

I was even made an honorary member of Warwick house (and have the badge to prove it)!

Vancouver 2010

Wednesday, 6th October, 2010

Four years ago I lay in hospital watching the British boardercross girl I'd raced against, compete in the Torino Olympic Games. I will never snowboard again.That day I decided I would do everything in my power to race in the Vancouver Paralympic Games.

I achieved that goal and there is no way I could have done it without the support of my family, friends and sponsors. Thank you everyone who helped me get this far.

I shall work hard to achieve a gold medal in Sochi 2014!

Next step: 2011 World Champs! (Sestriere, Italy in January)
