So what’s it like being a SportsAid athlete? #MyMiles With is a series aimed at giving YOU an insight into the lives of the next generation of British sporting heroes, and encouraging you to keep them company by taking part in the #MyMiles Challenge during SportsAid Week. This time it’s the turn of Mia Pachanksy, a member of the GB Taekwondo Academy, to take you into her world.
Three-time Olympic medallist Roger Black had to learn to deal with high-pressure scenarios at a young age after he was catapulted onto the senior stage in a flash. His rise to prominence came after winning gold in the 400m and 4x400m relay at the Cottbus 1985 European Junior Championships. And Roger’s incredible talent was seen on an even larger scale as he claimed double gold at the 1986 Commonwealth Games in Edinburgh.
