Year 11 student Jennifer Pickering has recently returned from Germany after representing Great Britain in Speed Skating. Jennifer started Speed Skating five years ago and since then, has broken four British records and is looking to make it five when she goes to Belgium this month representing Great Britain.
The Junior Programme that Jennifer was involved with took two years to complete and she now trains on and off the ice at Nottingham everyday.
Looking to the future, Jennifer hopes to be involved in the 2016 and 2018 Winter Olympics and is also hopeful to be a part of the Junior World Championships next year.
Jennifer advises that to be successful in a competitive sport you need to stay positive, train hard, stick to your schedule and simply love what you are doing.
