Having successfully qualified help me realise my dream of racing in GB colours at the 2015 European Aquathlon Championships.
About the project
I have always been a keen athlete, having swum competitively throughout my adolescence. Upon returning to education in 2011 following being made redundant from the Royal Air Force due to central government spending cuts, I fell back in love with training and sport and threw around the dream of one day competing as a Great Britain Age-Group competitor having gained inspiration from a course mate.
Graduating last summer I made the conscious effort to formally commit to training and competing as a multi-eventer whether that be triathlon, duathlon or in this case aquathlon. Qualification for this European Championships was gained following a joint first place finish at the Burntwood Aquathlon in March, and will mark my first outing as a Great Britain Age-Grouper.
Of course I'm overjoyed at qualifying but the only limiting factor to my competition is funding. The money I'm trying to raise will help subsidise Great Britain kit, travel and accommodation in the host city of Cologne, Germany. Any support will be greatly appreciated.
