I decided to become an athlete because all of my older sibling had been involved in sport so I was influenced by them.

Being one of the fastest in my class inspired me to be an athlete and so did the Beijing Olympics 2008 .

I could inspire the younger generation by being a respectable athlete by and and play fair.

I wanted to achieve things like winning medals and championships.

I have achived these goals but I could do better I achieved a jack petchey award in 2010 and I got 6 sportsHall medals 5 3 1 gold and 1 bronze for the south London athletics network and one silver in the relay for Surrey I also got a gold in the wandsworth borough athletics championships in the relay and a silver in the   200m behind my team mate .

Advice I would give would be to always listen to your coach and believe in yourself. It’s important to eat heathy as if you do I believe it will help you be fitter and more healthy what is important for an athlete.

Athletes that inspired me were Tyson gay as he has always been  2nd to bolt but still never gives and strives to be the very best he can be. You have a good mentality , good coach good diet and train often.

The worst race I have ever been in has to be at Kingsmeadow where it was just a small open meet and I didn’t feel comfortable in my starting blocks so I was twitching and I nearly had a false start and came last.

The final food I will eat before a  race will probably be a banana and I would drink a gatorade. The foods I avoid are like chips chocolate junk food in general
