I would like to say congratulations to Jess Norkett on her selection for the British Athletics Youth Talent Programme, beginning her journey on the Performance Pathway.

The YTP is a 2 year programme to help and support long term GB and Commonwealth Games potential, with only a small number of athletes across the country being identified to be part of the programme. 

The programme will give Jess the opportunity to learn, train and develop the necessary skills needed for senior success and development as a potential elite athlete. 

The programme not only covers training but also the physical, psychological, nutritional, lifestyle choices, career and finance along with communication and media aspects of being an athlete. 

This is a fantastic opportunity and has come about through hard work and determination, along with talent.
