Please note - that's not actually my birthday, it's wrong - if someone could tell me how to fix it, that would be great ,
(Also, there are a lot of performances missing on here - some pretty good ones, others not worth talking about, but heck, you get the general idea.)
Please note, Turnpike likes jelly babies and will steal your jelly babies whilst you're not looking. In other news, he won't buy you a drink on a night out, but he is pretty handy with a video camera - hey hey hey!!! ;)
Simon James Turnock comes from a Weightlifting background, and only took up Athletics in 2008.
Simon is currently injured with an abdominal and adductor problem - which means he's pretty crocked and won't be competing for a while. Hence the massive gaps in performances.
He won numerous county Clean and Jerk competitions, with one national title 2006 in the 85-94kg U18 category.
in Winter2009- Simon thought he'd try his hand at American Football, but after a slap round the back of the head from his coach, he stopped this and was part of the Southern Men's League Division 1 league title winning Nene Valley Harriers squad of 2010,
along with getting promotion to the British Athletics League at Abingdon on September 18th 2010.
Simon spends most of his time lying on his arse, or working his arse off - then getting injured. Then proceeds to lie on his arse.
It's a vicious cycle. In 2011 after actually starting to return to form and get some decent runs together, Simon got a serious knee problem, which left him lying on his arse for 3 months, and put on a truck load of weight, because he spent his spare time in the gym and all his pocket money on protein shakes - the greedy git.
Simon continues learning and applying better technique with the aim of consistently improving his own performance.
Although he personally needs to drop 10lbs and stop being such a whining pussy.
