No athlete can succeed without a good support network around them

For the successes past, present, and future a heartfelt thank you to all listed below who have played a part in helping me get to where I need to be.

I was selected for the Australian Under 17 Spark National Squad in 2014. This squad is for the junior Australian athletes who in this year were in the under 17 age group and selected as the best in this year group. The squad was taken to the AIS in Canberra for a 4-day training camp which consisted of educational programs that focused on recovery, drugs & alcohol, social networking, and the transitioning from junior to senior athletes.

We were all categorised into our event groups who we trained with for the camp (i.e. all sprinters trained with sprinters, throwers trained with throwers). Sprinters were trained by Jackie Byrnes, the at the time head coach/director of junior sprinters for Athletics Australia, and also coach of former sprint Olympian Melinda Gainsford-Taylor. We had our meals at the AIS and were housed there as well.

In 2014-2015 season I was awarded a TIS emerging talent scholarship.

Target Talent Program
In the 2014-15 season I was selected for the Tasmanian TTP Squad. This program selects the best junior talent in the state. It has 3 camps in the season year in Hobart where we are divided into our event groups for training, and then come together for the education programs (i.e. nutrition, gym work, drugs). The sprinters were trained by Australian Olympian Susan Andrews, the current head of TIS for Track & Field.
