 “It's been an absolutely unbelievable few days here in Prague at the IWAS u23 World Junior Games. Yesterday winning silver in the 200m but the highlight of my trip was today's races. I worked even harder today and got myself a personal best in my 800m and the best part of the entire day was that I added to my collection by winning a bronze in the 100m and a second silver in the 400m. I am absolutely thrilled and still pinching myself to prove I'm not dreaming. It was by far the best week of my life to date and I can't wait to come home to my family and friendsI'd just like to say a big thanks again goes to David Coen in feel good fitness and my track coach David Griffith.”
