Juliet’s diary reports from her recent performances for Great Britain at the Masters Championships in Pescara 2023. In reverse order:

“So, the relays were fun and eventful at the end of my champs. The team bagged a bronze. Over the moon. Congratulations to the team. 1st Me 2nd Fiona Steele 3rd Jan Vespa 4th leg Angela Bryant what a team! So happy right now!

“Congratulations too to Italy gold and Ireland silver. You guys’ rock! Enjoyed sharing the podium with this talented bunch of athletes - 2 weeks rest and recovery now.”

Juliet's progression diary: “Challenging day yesterday in my 200m, w55 semi to make the final. Warmed-up well and I was hoping to run a decent time. When we got out on the track the monsoon started and myself and all of heat 1 got thoroughly soaked.

“We had to wait one and a half hours before the re-start. Big shout out to Erge Viiklaid fellow semi- finalist, who lent me her top as I was shivering from being cold and wet.

“Somehow made it to my first 200m Final. Managed to finish 7th in the final. Achieved some of my aims for these champs. Very pleased to have made 2 finals and 7th place in each, progress.

"Now for the relays later today Thanks to Neil Sidney and Fiona Steele for looking after me at these champs. Made the final of the w55 100m. Left it all on the track. Finished 7th Overall.”
