After an extremely successful five years, I have taken the decision not to continue my partnership with Mikail on the track. In the period we have been together, we have won 1 x Paralympic Silver, 1 x World Championships Gold, 2 x World Championship Silvers, 1 x World Championship Bronze, 2 x European Golds & 1 x Commonwealth Gold medals. Due to the change in our circumstances with us both being removed from the WCPP, I feel that now is the time for a fresh start. Whilst we have enjoyed success on the track, we have not improved our PB since London 2012 and for me to medal at Rio, I feel this is essential. It has been an extremely hard decision to make as Mikail has not only been a Guide runner for me, he has also been a friend and we have shared some amazing experiences together. I would like to thank him for his commitment over the last 5 years and wish him well for the future.
