Holly Louise Thomas – Athletics
Holly is currently in her last year of sixth form and is studying Btec Sports and Exercise, Science and English Language.
Because Holly is still studying she finds it hard to fund all the costs for her sport including travel to and from training, travel to and from competition venues, as well warm weather training. The bursary from the LRT will help her meet these costs and therefore help her progress in her athletics career.
Her aim this year is to get to the European juniors. Her coach former hurdler Tony Jarrett feels she has the potential to do this. She will also incur physiotherapist and/or chiropractor costs which she just cannot afford.
“Athletics is such a huge and dominant part of my life and with the support from the LRT I believe I will be able to achieve my goals”
