Name: Victoria Williamson
DOB: 15/09/1993
Born: Norwich
Lives: Manchester

During school athletics was my passion, in particular sprint hurdles. I competed at a National level where I obtained medals at English Schools and the AAA indoor championships. Due to consistent injuries, I was looking for another sport to try.

In 2009 I was picked up through UK Sports Talent ID Programme Girls 4 Gold. This programme was an extensive female talent recruitment setup to find powerful athletes who wanted to fulfil their Olympic ambition. I was lucky enough to make it through the full process and gained a place on the GB Junior Team.

By 2010 I was competing at a National, European and World level. The Junior Europeans saw me take home two silver medals, and at the Junior World Championships I gained a silver and bronze. I quickly made my way through the ranks, and by 2013 I made my first GB Senior debut at the World Championships in Minsk. It was here myself and Becky James won a bronze medal.

Since 2013 I have continued to compete at a European and World level,  picking up some medals along the way. Im training full time and continuing to pursue my dream of representing GB at the Olympic Games.
