“I was the almost girl. I got fourth, fourth, fourth. Now I finally did it.
“The officials were always picking who they wanted in the relay team.
Sometimes they would say I didn’t have the experience so they would pick whoever was their favourite.
“It was a lot of pressure on a young athlete. I considered quitting.
I really wanted to travel with the senior national team and some coaches told me to try the hurdles.”
