How Long Have You Been Doing Athletics?
Since the age of 12

What Do You Love About Athletics?
I was never one for team sports. I become too controlling, and I like doing things my way. With Athletics, everything is on you and I enjoy that sort of pressure. Also with all the work and commitment you put into an event, the reward at the end is that little bit more special as you know you did it yourself

There is no judgement, and every session is a positive one and Nicks friendly nature is contagious

How Has The Academy Helped You So Far?
I’m gaining strength, not just physically but mentally too

What’s The Biggest Mindset Shift You’ve Had Since Joining The Academy?
That I can achieve anything if I put my mind to it

If You Could Be Any Superhero, Who Would You Be?
The Flash. With his lightning speed, stamina and agility there’s almost nothing I could not do!

P.S: it’s like these kids have never heard of any other superheroes apart from The Flash…
