HOW I STARTED

I began my athletics journey at the age of 16 at school as I broke the school record. I started my international career shortly after joining a local club and being spotted as an up and coming talent. My first international championship was in Paris, and it was spectacular, I was representing and jumping for Wales! 

MY GREATEST ACHIEVEMENT

My proudest moment is undoubtedly reaching the Manchester 2002 Commonwealth Games finals. This was a massive moment for me, it was my first experience on the big stage! It was unbelievable. I was determined this year, I wanted to make a name for myself, I put everything in and it paid off as I made the finals. 

MY HOBBIES

In my spare time, I enjoy travelling, reading, teaching an inspiring people! I love to travel all over the world, and I am lucky to have a job that has taken me across many countries and through hundreds of different cities! Wherever I go, I try to inspire people!

Who are we?

Sports For Champions UK (CIC) in partnership with St Nicholas CofE Primary School 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!

Sports For Champions 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%. Sports For Champions is an audited organization that is voluntarily registered with the Fundraising Regulator. You can support the initiative with assurance.

During the assembly, Sports For Champions 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, Sports For Champions envision youth growing in all walks of life as healthy, [pro] active community-minded talents.

Alongside Team Sports For Champions, 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 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.

St Nicholas CofE Primary School will be receiving an inspirational visit from renowned Professional athlete Robert Mitchell on the 25th April 2022 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?

St Nicholas CofE Primary School is promoting health and wellbeing throughout the school and with the help of a visit from Robert Mitchell, this will be enhanced as a school, they are also focussing on encouraging diversity and raising the aspirations of the pupils through sport.

St Nicholas CofE Primary School will benefit from the money raised as they will be able to invest in new equipment and fund opportunities for the children in afterschool clubs.

How can you help?

We're asking all parents to help make it a memorable event for the pupils with the help of Robert Mitchell and to raise funds for key resources for St Nicholas CofE Primary School.

If you are a local business or a friend of the school and would like to contribute to help us get to our target then please do make a donation and share our project as far as you can.
