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.
Are our Olympians inspiring you to make a change or even to help others make the change? Why not check out TTR's PT courses and see where it could take you!
Seem to be very helpful . I haven't started my course yet but helpful with getting the ball rolling
The lessons are very detailed and fun to take part in. The website is easy to navigate and I like the it saves from where you leave off.

Staff are absolutely brilliant couldn't ask for better customer service. They are straight up with you and extremely polite. Would reccomend to anybody
I had heard good things about TTR before starting my course (L3 Supporting Teaching & Learning in Schools) but it could not prepare me for the true level of excellence in the support they have provided so far. It has been, for all intensive purposes, faultless, besides a few typos in the resource documents. But hey nobody's perfect. Regardless, everything you need to aquire the qualification is provided and the support you receive from a professional tutor who has spent time working in the education sector is of great comfort.
A Big shout out to Jo-Ann for her expert personal tuition and insights into life as a TA.
Laura for guiding me through the initial sign up process with true professionalism and finesse.
By the end I'm sure I'll also be thanking Megan in the careers department for helping secure my first placement and eventually full time employment.
Such a pleasure and I would recommend this avenue of learning to anyone wanting to switch careers or just to learn something new with a qualification and job prospect at the finish line.
To all at The Training Room, I salute you!
