I get to to train with a fantastic group of athletes, and Team Moore have supported me every step of the way through my Transplant Sport journey…
Lawrence ‘Coach’ Moore
Lover of pharmaceuticals (working for a company that develops and sells them, that is) and a quality glass of wine, Coach Moore started coaching his daughter Mica, and before long a bunch of athletes noticed the great results she was having, and wanted a piece of the action! Always proud of his group, he can often be found with a stop watch in hand and a smile on his face.
Mica ‘Chu’ Moore
Currently embarking on a crash course (sometimes literally) of world class bobsleigh racing, our pocket rocket, and newly crowned World Junior bobsleigh champion has her roots firmly placed in South Wales, and we can’t wait to have her back when the ice season is over. A Welsh national record holder over 4 x 100m, Commonwealth Games representative, GB Junior athlete and Total Wipeout winner, this Disney princess is an awesome training partner to have.
Ashley ‘Smashers’ Jones
Ash’s mentality of ‘just keep going’, is completely infectious, and his progress over the 400m in 2016 was testament to his perseverance over the man-killer event. 5 PBs in 2016 and a return to his junior event of high jumping means that 2017 is set to be an exciting year for our very own Smashers.
Curtis ‘Curt’ Matthews
A 2014 Commonwealth Games top 10 placed decathlete, Curt decided to dabble with rugby for a year in 2015, but his love for athletics proved too strong, and he was back competing for Wales again at the end of the 2016 summer season. Curtis successfully qualified for the 2018 Commonwealth Games, and funds his training by exercising dogs with his own company, https://healthhounds.co.uk
Lewis ‘Lew’ Evans
As of January 2017, Lewis joined the rather elite group of Transplant Athletes, after he received a new kidney from his mum. Years of dialysis are (fingers crossed) now a thing of the past, and in his first British Games he won a silver medal in the 100m. He has already run post transplant PBs in the 60m and 100m, and we’re expecting big things from Lew in 2018.
