Personal Profile
Since leaving university in July 1999, my main focus has been that of training as a full-
time sprint athlete. I have competed for both England and Great Britain and I have been
consistently ranked in the top ten in the UK over 200m. Most significantly I was a part of
the Gold medal winning 4x100m relay squad at the 2002 Commonwealth Games in
Manchester. However, I have also balanced the high demands of a being a full-time
sporting career with gaining valuable work experience in a number of varied employment
and voluntary positions.

The challenges of a full-time sporting career have strengthened my disciplined, focussed
and hard working nature. I have also developed a strong ability to adapt and apply
myself, thinking diversely, scientifically and practically to improve performance in sport

I have excellent communication skills, with the capability to grasp systems and processes
quickly and accurately. I am committed to undertake further training and career
development wherever necessary. Finally I am keen to work in an interesting and
challenging environment and passionate about enhancing health, exercise and sport
