sport keeps me fit and brings a sense of well being and achievement. Competing as a team member brings a sense of community and belonging.I will continue to develop as a National Biathlete and Southern County Swimmer. But more than this I want to continue to give back to my sport and local community through my coaching and teaching for my swimming club and local sports centre. As Club Captain I think it is important to encourage and mentor the younger swimmers. It is this commitment and leadership that turns young team members into winners. As well as team events I contribute to the local fell run which is organised for the community to raise money for charity. Sport is a part of my life because t provides a disciplined structure for me and it is something that I wan to help foster throughout my local community. Leadership is something that I hope to continually develop.
