What are your goals/aspirations coming into Trabzon 2011?

My goals and aspirations coming into Trabzon 2011 are to possibly win a medal, run a personal best, enjoy the whole experience and gain as much as possible from it all.

 

Describe your most memorable performance to date; including time/finishing place, location, etc

My most memorable performance to date was Tailtean Games 2011 in Morton Stadium, Santry. I won the Intermediate Girls 800m race in a new personal best and a new record of 2.07.78. It was very memorable because I felt as though all the hard work and training had paid off and it was very worth it. Hopefully I can run faster if I find the perfect race with the perfect conditions and people to push me in it.

 

Who do you admire as an ‘Athletic Hero’ and why?

I admire Sebastian Coe as an “Athletic Hero” because of how dedicated he was to the sport and he showed how much is possible to achieve when you are willing to work hard, want it enough, and love what you are doing.

 

What is your favourite sports team?

My favourite sports team is Manchester United

 

If you could have an appearance on any television show, which character and show would you choose?

I would choose “Friends” and I would choose the character of Rachel.

 

What is your favourite type of music?

My favourite type of music is pop music i.e. The Script and Take That

 

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?

I would travel to Australia because I think I would enjoy the different climate and would benefit from training in this climate. Also I think there is a lot to experience and see in the country.
