Olivia Breen: Is gearing up for a busy few months

Hello everyone. I've had another good week of training and am now getting ready for the Bedford International Games at the weekend where I am competing in the 100 metres and the long jump.

It's the final opportunity before the Commonwealth Games selection which takes place on the evening of the 1 June so I am hoping to better my long jump PB to help my selection chances.

Last week I was very excited to be asked to compete at the Sainsbury’s Anniversary Games on 20 July in the 100m.

It should be a great experience at the amazing venue of Horseguards Parade and I can't wait - it will be a busy July!

I was also delighted to receive a box full of Adidas kit to use this season for competition and training.

This week I’m off college for half term, I had a good weekend in Cardiff, where my grandparents live, and enjoyed training at the NIAC at the Cardiff Metropolitan University.

I love going to Wales and seeing my family there.
