Throws Meet, Leiria Portugal – 30 April 2016

Luisa Goes Big!!

Ambition is important in all walks of life but without the relevant skills and experience very often we fail to meet the standards we set ourselves. Exposure to higher and higher competitions, club, county, regional, and national are all steps on the road toward meeting your international aspirations. However, delivery on each of the stages is quite a different aspect of experience – in other words it’s one thing to desire success and yet another to achieve it.

Hay Fever Season - British Athletics Science and Medicine Update

Hay fever is more common in athletes and around 60% of our team suffer with some of the common symptoms of blocked or runny nose, sneezing, runny eyes or even just fatigue. It can be associated with worsening of asthma symptoms if you have asthma.

Symptoms are due to an allergy to pollen, and are therefore worse when the pollen count is high. Some people are allergic to grass pollen, some to tree pollen, so different people may suffer at different times of the season (grass in Spring, tree in deep Summer).
