the value of sport
coming 4th is winning
I’ve have always been passionate about sport and the lessons it can teach you about life. I never thought that I would get to experience them quite like I did. Fast forward to age 15 and when I never thought I would be an elite athlete… This very quickly changed one afternoon which was spent trialling for the national bobsleigh team.
From there I was fortunate enough to spend 4 years training and racing for Great Britain in the sport of bobsleigh. It wasn’t all plain sliding (pardon the pun), I managed this alongside my most formative years of education taking my GCSEs and A Levels during this period.
I experienced some incredible things, travelling to various parts of the world and meeting people from all walks of life, I became World Number One and Two in consecutive seasons and competed at a Youth Olympic Games. I learned some valuable life lessons around time management, commitment and how to see the true success in what you have done.
Having this wealth of knowledge behind me, I have taken many of the episodes with me into a corporate and professional life and enjoy sharing these with others to help them see the value in their own experiences.
