I’m Archie Davis, a GB junior middle distance athlete. I’m 19 years old and have competed at Commonwealth, European and World championships at age group level. My best performance to date is my 5th place finish at the European U20 championships in July 2017. This came after a very difficult year of injury, having the whole of the winter season off whilst needing a knee operation, I ended up in a fight to fitness in time for the summer. Although my year ended well, I still didn’t manage to achieve anywhere near what I wanted.
I am still unfunded and gaining the funds I need to succeed is a struggle. I am often unable to travel with my training group for altitude camps as I just don’t have the money. These camps are vital for my success and this year I am aiming to go on two training trips, should I have enough funding. These trips will be pivotal as I aim to achieve my summer target; running 3 minutes and 38 seconds for 1500m – this would make me one of the fastest 19 year olds ever! I know this is something I am capable of and after a tough 2016/17, I am ready to prove myself.
This will be a lot easier for me if I am able to fund these training trips!
