Hi everyone, thanks for visiting my page!

I am a Great Britain Skeleton Athlete with the ambition of competing at the Winter Olympics in 2022 and 2026 and winning a gold medal. Skeleton is a high speed sliding sport that is full of adrenaline, where I lay head first on a sled reaching speeds up to 140kph… with no brakes!

I was selected onto the Great Britain Skeleton Talent Squad in 2017, and since then I have been training extremely hard to achieve my long term goals. I have completed two full seasons on ice where I’ve been travelling around Europe to lots of cold countries! I competed in my first two races in St.Moritz in February 2019 where unusually, I competed against both men and women. I placed 7th (1st woman) and 8th (3rd woman) in a field of 28 competitors in each race.

Next season 19/20, I will be competing internationally on the European Circuit with the goal of winning as many medals as possible. However before the winter season begins, I have a long summer of training ahead of me where I train with the world class support team in Bath, with the goal of becoming as fast as I can be on the push start where I sprint with the sled.

I would like to raise £1000 to assist with my living costs as I train full time in Bath and equipment costs such as visors for my helmet. Your support will help me achieve my seasons goals and drive me towards my Winter Olympic ambitions.

Great Britain is the leading country in the world for Skeleton, achieving continuous success at every Winter Olympics since Skeleton was added. Most recently in PyeongChang 2018, Lizzy Yarnold defended her title winning her second gold medal, and Laura Deas and Dom Parsons both won bronze medals. I am confident that I have the best team around me and I have the passion and determination to achieve my ultimate Winter Olympic goal.

Thank you for taking the time to read my page, I would love for you to become part of my journey to the Winter Olympics.
