COMMONWEALTH LEARNINGS
"The Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games is bittersweet. I went in there in great shape, coming off a great indoor and domestic season. I was really happy with my qualifying round performance. In the finals I threw a distance which put me into third place after three rounds, but I switched off from there and, once I was bumped out of the medals, I couldn’t switch back on. I learnt a very difficult lesson, which until this day I never made again." (Athlete, Jan 2018)
