“I've really enjoyed the selection process over the last year, it has been a lot of hard work, on and off the ice, but coming towards the event, I'm getting more and more excited by the day.

The tournament will be the first time I have experienced a multi-sport environment. I am really looking forward to heading out with the team to compete against the world's best in a tournament of this stature. I have been dreaming of doing for a long time, but to do it with a team like this, one with so much team spirit excites me even more.

I would also like to thank all of the sports and active lifestyle team at the University of Leicester, especially my P.T. Mark Simmonds, Steve Bayley, Liz Jennings, for helping me get selected, prepare and take on this event. It really means a lot to me”
