BIO

  • Shelayna began her sporting journey as a promising young hockey player before one of her teachers recognised she had a talent for running. What started out as a hobby, she quickly progressed through the age groups until the years of training paid off and gained selection to her first international competition, the first of many.

  • On top of the experience and knowledge gained through her successful career she has also had the opportunity to learn from and be supported by some of the world’s best coaches and practitioners, so she knows the importance and value of having a good team who can help you maximise your performance and accomplish your goals.

In addition, she has delivered numerous motivational talks to an array of corporate businesses and continually provides inspirational presentations within schools across the country.

  • Shelayna has been a familiar face and consistent performer on the Great Britain Athletics team, an Olympian, European Champion, World medallist and multi-National Champion across all age groups. Want to know what it takes to come from never running to making the Olympics? Then look no further.
