She spends considerable time helping, volunteering and organising events, whereby helping at Llangorse Lake Big Swim in 2017 was instrumental in the rescue and immediate care of a swimmer suffering full cardiac and respiratory arrest, whereby she was subsequently awarded Air Officer Commanding 22 Training Group Commendation and mentioned in HM Queens Birthday Honours List 2018 Military division (Click to read more) Very happy to say the swimmer made a full recovery.
After a mixed season in 2018 whereby she came 3rd overall in Larnaca Olympic Distance race and 5th overall, 2nd AG in April Joke Half Distance race before burning out later in the year trying to do too much, so she is now focusing on the 2019 season completing as many of the Cyprus events as possible, with Ironman Zurich in July her main focus with Ironman Copenhagen in Aug.
From here she will then decide the remainder of the season.
