Lets begin the month of March with an inspiring journey of the track & field athlete Louis Hazel as she speaks about her life, training and diet routines in a candid conversation with Namita Nayyar, President Women Fitness.
Ms. Namita Nayyar:
You began training at the young age of 10, and in 2009, you were ranked 2nd best in the country and 9th best of all time. You reached the pinnacle of success at the 2010 Commonwealth Games where you won the gold medal for the England team. While still at university you joined the renowned Birchfield Harriers Athletics Club and rest is history. Share with us your journey in the world of athletics.
Ms. Louise Hazel:
My athletics journey has been one of ups and downs you could say a bit of a roller coaster without a doubt the climax of my career was winning Commonwealth gold in 2010 and then going on to represent my country at the London 2012 Olympic Games. My Carrillo came in 2008 when I suffered the tragic loss of my father followed by another blow of losing my national lottery funding in place in the Great Britain team I bounced back a year later in 2009 with a personal best performance which placed me amongst the best heptathletes on the all-time rankings. Just a year later I got myself a spot at the world Championships. At a time when most people would have easily left the sport I somehow managed through persistence and determination to not only stay in the sport I loved but to thrive in the sport that I loved. As a life lesson this taught me to never give up and to constantly work hard in the face of adversity and failure in pursuit of your dreams.
