SportsAid's Athlete of the Month for July – Niamh Emerson, 17, from Shirland
28 Jul 2016

Niamh Emerson has developed a healthy habit of making and breaking records. The 17 year old recently returned home from the European Youth Athletics Championships where she amassed 5,919 points to take bronze in the heptathlon, eclipsing the total of 5,815 she produced the month before to set a new British youth record.

SportsAid's support meant so much to me and I’ll always be very grateful for what they’ve done.
