What is your role at British Athletics?
I’m the Parallel Success Co-ordinator, covering London and the South East. The purpose of my role is effective coordination of the Parallel Success programme activity, to increase the number of eligible Para pathway athletes, retained and competing in the sport. This includes monitoring of early talent identification to progress athletes up through the talent pathway. What does Black History Month mean to you?
A time of reflection, rejoicing and celebrating black people who gave us hope and freedom. A chance for our voices to be heard, internal recognition and learning which show that we are people of importance.
What black individual do you most admire in history?
One of the people I most admire is Jesse Owens
