Name: Victoria Williamson
I began my sporting career in athletics, in particular sprint hurdles. However, in 2009 I was picked up through UK Sports Talent ID Programme Girls 4 Gold. This was an extensive female talent recruitment setup to find powerful athletes who wanted to fulfill their Olympic ambition. I was lucky enough to make it through the full process and gained a place on the GB Junior Team.
By 2010 I was competing at a National, European and World level. The Junior Europeans saw me take home two silver medals, and at the Junior World Championships I gained a silver and bronze. I quickly made my way through the ranks, and by 2013 I made my first GB Senior debut at the World Championships in Minsk. It was there myself and Becky James won a bronze medal.
Since 2013 I have continued to compete at a European and World level, picking up some medals along the way. I'm training full time and continuing to pursue my dream of representing GB at the Olympic Games.
