ANNOUNCEMENT: it’s the end of a chapter

20 years since I was first introduced to athletics as a little girl, 16 years as a professional athlete. I’ve decided to call it a day and hang up my spikes…

Athletics has given me many opportunities, including travelling the world and meeting many people.

It’s been my life for 20 years but I’m ready to move on and look forward to my future ahead.

Big thank you to those who have supported my fans, friends, sponsors and family. Coach Chris Zah for believing in me and making dreams of mine realities.

I’ve learnt a lot on my journey through the highs and lows, a big reason for the woman I am today.
