Sad day thinking of George Gandy, so many qualities made him an amazing coach & person. His generosity with his knowledge, support and time created a wonderful vibe at Loughborough & on so many of my training camps. A wonderful balance of no nonsense & incredibly nurturing. 💜💜

If any athlete or coach hasn’t found the ⁦⁩ yet, you have to try it. It’s a perfect pitch of intelligence, experience and passion to help in an area we all need to talk about more. Keep it up - it’s brilliant!

Waited 8 years for this, what’s another 1 in the grand scheme of things? 😅📈💪🏽 As an athlete, it’s heartbreaking news about the olympics being postponed until 2021, but it’s for all the right reasons and the safety of everyone! Hope everyone keeps safe and stay indoors x
