SportsAid alumni delivered 11 medals on day nine of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games with Niamh Emerson, 18, producing a real highlight by securing bronze in the heptathlon for Team England. Team Scotland’s Grace Reid claimed gold in the diving while Team Wales saw double silver success in rhythmic gymnastics and wrestling through Laura Halford and Kane Charig respectively.

With the help of SportsAid, I did my thing. I didn’t come from a wealthy family, and there were times when I thought ‘I need a job’ but I stuck to my swimming. Thankfully it did pay off. It's about gambling and making sacrifices. I put a high risk in myself and invested the time in what was going to make the difference to my swimming.
