Nina Kennedy is our 26th Athlete to speak to us about making the 2014 IAAF World Junior Championships Team. Members of the Spark Team will compete in Eugene (USA), from July 22nd to 27th 2014.
How did you get involved in Athletics?
Started off with little athletics and loved it!! My coach spotted me and ask if I wanted to try pole vault.
When you first heard that you made the team, what was your initial reaction?
So relieved! It was my goal all season.
Are you doing anything differently in preparation for this competition?
Not really; same preparation as usual! I got some new poles the other day; so jumping on them is cool
What are you most looking forward to about the trip to Eugene (USA)?
Who has been your biggest inspiration in this sport?
The people I train with; they keep me motivated!
What advice would you give to someone who is looking to become a professional Athlete?
If that’s what you really want.. Then follow your dreams; anything is possible..
