"The Commonwealth Youth Games was a great experience personally and has benefited me in multiple ways, the whole event was amazing and I will remember this experience for my whole life. The event gave me experience of international racing and will benefit me in the future in other races of this standard I will hopefully be racing, racing at this standard for the Island is great to represent and show what Manx sporting as a whole as to offer and how strong and talented our athletes are. The ceremonies also allowed athletes to be with each other out of competition and allowed us to also parade our flags and show off the Isle of Man's athletes. As a whole the experience was outstanding and coming away with the first gold ever for the Isle of Man makes it even more special, as the large amount of great athletes who have competed before me and to be the only gold is surprising but unbelievable."
