Alice is a totally committed runner with talent and potential in the sport for the future. She trains almost everyday and is determined and self-motivated. She is a member of the local running club and her achievements and attitude is an inspiration to other club members, so much so that the club is now becoming highly regarded nationally and achieving top placings in national events. Alice was the junior sports personality for her city this year. She has run for England and more recently Great Britain in the Junior Youth Olympics in Turkey in July 2011. Her only ambition in life is to represent Great Britain in the Olympic Games and stand on the top podium with a gold medal, the Union Jack raised and the National Anthem playing as a result of her achievements. That is what all this training and dedication is about and it is not just a dream, but something that she is really committed to through hard work and self discipline. She would be so honoured to have the opportunity to carry the Olympic Flame. Her running club would be proud too that she was representing them and it would enable her to feel a part of the Olympic event in her home country. Despite spending so much of her time training and competing, Alice has also worked hard at school and achieved high grades in her GCSEs (7A* and 3A grades), which again demonstrates her self discipline and determination. The opportunity to carry the Olypic Torch is a once in a lifetime chance and she deserves to have this honour.
