Most pleasing athletic performance

My most pleasing athletic performance was in the second year of the Northern Ireland U17 championships when I was sick and I was still able to win


Most disappointing athletic performance

My most disappointing performance was when my last year in the Irish schools shot putt competition when I did not throw to my best standard
