Emily has been invited by British Athletics to join up with the Paralympic Development Academy from January 2019. The selection panel took into account Emilys current performance profile, Emilys competition history ( Power of 10),UK and WPA rankings to select athletes who have shown the potential to progress onto a Paralympic Futures Academy in the next 1-2 years and onwards towards the World Class Program (WCP)within 3-5 years and hopefully onwards to win medals at a future Paralympic Games.
The Program starts in January 2019 and will focus on athletes and coaches through specific technical development squad based training. There will be a series of Paralympic Development Academy Camps which will be led by experienced event coaches.
Emily is absolutely overjoyed to be invited to join up to the Development Academy. We would like to thank Emilys club Gateshead Harriers and all of Emilys coaches who have helped in her development to this point.
