DATE OF BIRTH
January 31st, 1992.
My dad has arm wrestled for over 20 years so it has always been in my family. I had my first competiton at 5 years old! And won! But started training at about 12 so taking it seriously for about 4 years.
At the moment 70 kg but dieting now to 65 kg or maybe 60 kg if I can keep the strength.
Depending on the opponent. Usually deep hook but the toproll's getting better now.
Kay Mathias (GBR), Sarah Bäckman (SWE), and Marina Krylova (RUS).
It was between me and Marina Krylova in Norway at the Europeans 2008. We were stuck in the hook (closer to my pad) holding! And then I fouled but I recon I could have beaten her!

Senior British Champion 2nd
4th in the Europeans 2008, junior right hand
Belgium International Champion x2, junior right and left
Belgium International 2nd, senior right arm
Belgium International 3rd, senior left arm

I would like to see more girls involved especially in Great Britain and of course I would like to see the sport become OLYMPIC!
are of course to win the World Championships but also to beat Elain Barker. She is the best armwrestler in Great Britain and it would be a dream to have a great match with her. Also to become a confident and strong 60 kg armwrestler!
