Additional information

RAPID IMPROVEMENT
In two years, has made rapid improvement from 1.96m to 2.18m, then to 2.30m. (tomgale.co.uk, Dec 2017) "I met Denis DOYLE (GBR) in August 2015 after my coach at Bath University emailed him, asking if he would be willing to work with me. Just after jumping a personal best at Birmingham of 1.96m, I did my first training session with him and it’s all moved forward from there. I would say my big improvement was down to my coach Denis." (Athlete, Jan 2018)


 


STEPPING UP 
Although just 18, he is stepping up to compete in senior competition. "It’s very exciting to be travelling and competing with some of the best in the world, but I consider myself one of the seniors anyway. I’ve beaten some of them before, so to think of myself as any less capable would be ridiculous." (Athlete, Jan 2018)
