I need to concentrate on the person that I want to be going forward and to re-discover happiness, motivation and enthusiasm in my day to day life.I can’t thank enough, the people who have helped me through the last couple of years, especially the last couple of weeks. Without having to mention any names, these people will know who they are…I am very thankful for their love and support.With hope, I am excited for the years to come and the fresh challenges that lie ahead in and out of sport.”
