Disappointing end to a brief season
Due to the short time line that existed between my hamstring tear on July 4th & the Worlds on August 4th I was unable to move through to the World Championship finals.
I will now take a few weeks of to let my hamstring fully recover before preparing for The world indoor championships in March and the Commonwealth Games in April!
