MEMORIES
Took silver in 100m and 4x100m relay at Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games. "Winning two silver medals was an incredible experience for me and I’m really excited to get back out there. Glasgow 2014 was a fantastic event. It was the first time I won a senior international medal, so it’s great to be going back to where it all started."
