HOW I STARTED
I had always been somewhat athletic, but I had never competed until one day at the age of 15 one of my friends had asked me to come down to the track. A coach asked me to try the long jump and I picked up the skill extremely quickly. In my third competition, I came eighth at England Under 17 Championships. It was at that point I decided to focus on the long jump. I quickly improved and began dominating the junior scene. I transitioned into a senior athlete shortly after, and kept improving!
MY GREATEST ACHIEVEMENTS
Becoming British champion in 2011. I was incredibly unwell at the competition, however, I managed to produce a winning distance on my final jump! I felt tremendously proud and glad that all of my hard work had paid off especially since I was able to win despite feeling unwell. It felt great to call myself the champion of Great Britain!
MY GREATEST CHALLENGE
Balancing university and training as they were not part of the same institution. I would regularly be in California training whilst my classes would take place in London. I had to be very disciplined to make sure my work was completed on time. Thankfully, I was able to conquer this challenge and move onto newer and bigger goals!
In my spare time, I love going to the cinema, dancing and going to funfairs or theme parks! I am a massive film lover, and going to the cinema is a lot of fun. I also enjoy dancing! It keeps me in shape, and is fun! Another hobby of mine is going to funfairs or theme parks and riding rollercoasters. I enjoy the rush and they are always a great day out! My favourite meal is probably a palm oil bean stew with some plantain!
MY FUTURE GOALS
My future goals are to finish my International career in great physical and mental health, and to be able to help other athletes progress to the levels I have reached in sport, and beyond! Through mentoring, management and physical training, I hope to aid athletes in finding their path and achieving their wildest dreams!
Who are we?
Sports For Champions UK (CIC) in partnership with Dame Janet Primary Academy and the local community are running a fundraiser to help support the mental and physical health of the pupils after the national lockdowns.
Great news! Sports For Champions UK (CIC) will soon visit your school! Youth are invited to join a sponsored fitness circuit led by a Professional athlete, who will educate, enable, and empower participants with a view to inspire them as champions of tomorrow.
While we’re not all athletically inclined we strongly encourage participation, because all youth have talent and require inspiration to pursue their dreams - whatever they may be! After 10 years of success, we can promise a highly memorable event!
SFC events are held in support of schools, which keep 60% of the funds raised to spend on resources that will enrich young peoples’ education/experience. Professional athletes in need of support are the only other beneficiaries from the remaining 40%. SFC is a government audited organization that is voluntarily registered with the Fundraising Regulator. You can support the initiative with assurance.
During the assembly, SFC athletes show medals and tell their story, hard work, lessons, and insights shared to capture the imagination of all and inspire healthier active lifestyles. Athletes discuss challenges on the road to success, with resilience, nutrition, diet, and dedication forming key topics. Fitness is essential for every young person’s general wellbeing in physical and mental health. It is also proven to be a strong booster of learning potential or brain power. By inspiring children as champions of tomorrow, SFC envision youth growing in all walks of life as healthy, [pro] active community-minded talents.
Alongside Team SFC, athletes invest in local communities to avail of support with training-related costs (e.g. physio/travel). Most world-class athletes train a rigorous 35hr week and struggle to find reliable work that fits their schedule. This is how the funds we raise enable athletes and your school/club to realise their potential. Many pro athletes are unsponsored, lose support, or cannot find it.
Sports For Champions CIC offers schools the benefit of an added investment on resources/facilities, whilst helping athletes with the funds required to sustain their journey with a contribution towards training and competition fees, medical costs, equipment, and more.
Dame Janet Primary Academy will be receiving an inspirational visit from renowned Professional athlete Ezekiel Ewulo on the 5th of November 2021 and we need your support!
The pupils will benefit from Physical activity, an inspirational talk including medal display and a Q&A session.
Why is this important?
Dame Janet Primary Academy need to recover and rebuild after the national lockdown and with the help of a visit from Ezekiel Ewulo the pupils and teachers will be given the tools to respond to issues like a pandemic, begin to focus on friendships and social engagement all while improving their physical and mental well being.
Dame Janet Primary Academy will benefit from the money raised to invest in key front-line services and equipment.
