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.

Thanks a lot to The Training Room for helping me to submit my application,they were very kind and pacient with me. Everything was arranged in less than 48 hours,I had immediate acces to courses, which is impressive. Now I am on my way in becoming a Software Developer.
Very good way of advertising and market their product.
Every procedure was explained very well, which is more professional.
I dealt with Steve, Charlotte & Grace. They are some of the friendliest most helpful people I have ever dealt with. When it comes to the training room I will definitely recommend! **

Everything is great about this company. Love it and will consider doing more courses with them! (=

All the staff from admin, finance , to the actual tutor were extremely helpful and friendly.
They removed my doubts and gave me the confidence to move forward and book my place on the course. I needed finance and they helped me every step of the way.
I would give 10 stars if I could...especially to Marie - in new student enrollment ?? who gives new meaning to 'customer service'.

Everything they said they would do they did on time
Well it was supposed to be initially for my husband and then upon hearing what training room offer I spoke to a lovely chap who told me everything in details and the aftercare they provide called me back asked how everything is going. So I would definitely recommend them
