In my last blog I said that I wanted a memorable Olympic Games. Well it certainly was memorable but unfortunately not necessarily for the reasons that I wished for!
Three weeks before the Olympics I threw a personal best and British record of 66.17m in the wind and rain at Crystal Palace. I had the best first three rounds of my life. However, in a latter round of the competition I partially tore an elbow ligament. Going into an MRI scanner on your 30th birthday (2 days after the competition), not knowing if you’re going to be able to compete in a home Olympics when you are in the shape of your life is not an experience I would recommend! I was thankfully given the all-clear to compete. My physio did a superb job to get me back to full fitness.
The only issue was that I had not thrown maximally in that time as I had to save the hardest efforts for inside the stadium. Unfortunately on my last warm up throw inside the stadium my elbow ligament fully ruptured making me unable to feel my hand. I tried to throw but the lack of feeling made it impossible. After the third round, the pain hit me.
I have never believed in luck until this experience. For whatever reason, I was not meant to be successful in London. I’m sure in years to come I will figure out why. However, my desire is still as strong as ever and at 30 I am still improving so all I can think of is that a medal in Rio will be that much sweeter.
I have since had an operation to reattach the ligament and I am back training moderately on the rest of my body. I have what can only be described as a Forrest Gump style brace on my right arm. When that comes off in a month or so’s time, the road to Rio 2016 starts. Success does have a destination but you have to enjoy the process. I do and that’s what matters most.

Very friendly staff
Super welcoming and lovely
I applied to the advert and within 12 hours I had received a positive response from Alison. She explained what there was to be offered clearly and outlined everything I needed to know. Ella helped me on the loan information and both team members made me feel confident in the products and services that were being offered to me.
Had a very relaxing chat, was able to answer to all of my questions and more!
Donna was very nice and friendly. She explained everything clearly and answered all my questions precisely.
Erin was very helpful and patient with me and let me know all info i needed. I found her to be very positive and motivating on something i was unsure on doing.
Absolutely brilliant. The lady I spoke to, Clare, listened to everything I had to say and ask, and answered everything she could. All of the staff I have spoken to have been happy bubbly and seem genuinely happy to speak to and assist you anyway they can. Plus they never tried to force feed you their course which was refreshing.
My advisor, Steve, was intensely helpful throughout the process of signing up to the course. He would contact me regularly with new information, but was also extremely polite and never put any pressure on me.
Really friendly and informative
I booked over the phone with Steve who gave me all the time in the world to talk about my worries before starting the course. When I got there I found the trainer Nick was so friendly and helpful, no question to small to answer. The other tutors who came on assessment days were also wonderfully knowledgable and everyone made you feel like you could do it. Since then the after care teams have made sure I have the certificates I need, when I needed them for my insurances etc and I’m really pleased with my new career. I did the intense PT course in September and loved that it was full on.
When I applied I was connected the next day. I was taken through the course being told the sets that I will be taking with all the information that I need to know what the course involves and got the answers to questions that I wanted .
Very patient and excellent
Sarah was really helpful, friendly and efficient. I got all the info i needed and she did everything she could to help me through all the admin etc. I found the service provided very useful and would happy to use it again.
