Next stop Rio!

2015 became a very successful year for Meghan, personal bests in 3 events plus a chance to represent Great Britain again in the World Championships in Beijing.

 

After the disappointments of 2014, due to a fractured navicular, the season got off to a good start for Meghan. She gained an automatic selection for the World Championships team by running two qualification standards and coming top two at the National Championships.

 

Concentrating on speed work mid-season enabled Meghan to knock nearly half a second off her 100m hurdles time bringing it down to 13.21seconds. This is something she hopes to do more of next season too.

 

It wasn’t until July that Meghan was finally able to train to full capacity without any foot pain. A good few solid weeks of training both at home and in the British Athletics training camp in Japan brought great results in Beijing. She ran a storming time and a new personal best in the first round in 54.52 seconds enabling her to progress through to the semi-finals, here she was placed third so unfortunately didn’t make the final this year.

 

Meghan said:

"After the huge disappointment of missing most of the 2014 season, this year has been much more than I could have hoped for. Running PB’s in three events and making it to the World Championships after so much missed winter training gives me the confidence I need going into 2016 and the Olympic Games!"

 

After a few weeks rest in September the Road to Rio is now well and truly underway and Meghan has her eyes set firmly on that final in Rio next year.

 

We will be posting Meghan’s blogs on here over the coming months – hope you enjoyed her first one.
