Javelin - £400
I am a javelin thrower who lives in Kendal, but I am currently studying at Loughborough University. I am in my first year of a Chemical Engineering degree course, having finished my A levels at Queen Katherine School in 2015.
Since starting at Loughborough I have had the opportunity to begin training with national javelin coaches and squad having thrown the javelin for school and club in Kendal. This season I am aiming to substantially improve on my personal best of 55.62 and throw around 63-65m, which would place me in the top 3 or 4 in the country in my age group (U20's) and the top 15 to 20 at senior level.
In order to help me do this I am going to be competig at national level competitions this year, rather than in the Northern League (as I have done previously). L will be competing for Sheffie!d A.C. in the British Athletics league premier division, competing in the UK U20/U23 championships at Bedford, British Universities national championships, also at Bedford and the UK javelin carnival. I am also going to Finland in the summer to attend the Javelin carnival there, which is the largest in the world.
