About Login
My athletics career has been fairly successful, in the 10 years from 1990 to 2000 I was fortunate to win numerous vault titles. Essex Schools (1992), Essex County Senior Champs (6 times), Both South of England U20 and U23 and the UK Independent Schools Champs (1992). I also was lucky enough to win a Bronze medal at the 1996 British Universities Championship for Brunel (Borough Road College) and the Silver in 1998 while studying at Cambridge. Both of these matches resulted in two GB Student International vests. I finished with a moderate pb of 4.60m, injury forced me to retire early but not after touring the World with the Achilles Club representing Oxford & Cambridge on tours to Tokyo, Beijing, Singapore, Australia, Estonia, Finland and Russia. I have been coaching a group of vaulters and multi eventers since 2004 based at Lee Valley and have enjoyed lots of success. Kirsty Macintosh won the English Schools, South of England U20 and numerous Essex County Champs. Louise Shortland is reigning Herts County and South of England Senior Champion. Jamie Wright won multi event AAA's Bronze indoor and out in 2006 jumping a best of 4.56m in the vault and represent Great Britain. Daniel Awde competed in the 2008 Beijing Olympics after becoming AAA's decathlon champion that summer vaulting 4.90m finishing 6th in the discipline at the Games.
