I have loved sharks for as long as I can remember. They're wonderous animals, that deserve our respect and support. Unfortunately, their home is being destroyed, and we, as a species, are not taking care of them. This is a chance to try and change that, and help these fantastic animals, by raising awareness of this magnificent charity.

I started participating in Duathlons in October 2018, and loved it. In 2012, I had an ambition to become a professional cyclist, and participate in the 2020 Olympics, a feet that was never going to happen. However, after having an epiphany last year, I decided to start running, and realised, I love both of these sports. This is when I became a duathlete, and took the chance to pursue an ambition to represent this charity, and get additional sponsors onboard. As a result of a lot of hard training, I have now qualified for the 2020 European Age Group Duathlon Championships.The next stages are to qualify for the 2020 World Championships.

I will be representing Shark Trust during the championships, and hope for many more years. So please, if you can help spare something, let's help these animals, and look after our world.
