Josie Oliarnyk – I would say that one of my main achievements this summer has been competing for Great Britain Juniors at the Manchester international. This was a great experience which I learnt so much from and coming 3rd was just a bonus. Another achievement this summer was competing for England Midland at the Welsh international where I came 1st. Also, the English Schools Championships was another accomplishment, amongst a great field of athletes I was able to come 2nd whilst being at the bottom end of the senior age group. At the CAU inter county championships I came 3rd which was another surprising success this summer. Other successes this summer include winning the long jump at the midland championships (also coming 3rd in the 100m at the same competition,) and winning the 200m and the long jump at the Worcestershire County Championships. All of this success this summer is due to the commitment from my coach Dominic McNeillis and the support from other coaches and members from Halesowen, like Chris Brook and Julie and Lynn Bellfield.
