Joe recently got in touch with the DRF with news of his achievements since he was awarded his scholarship back in 2020.
“A few weeks ago, I competed in the National Biathlete championships and finished in third place successfully qualifying for the Biathlete World Championships, which will be held at the end of October in Madeira. I am extremely excited to be able to finally compete at my first World Championship event after the many setbacks that covid caused.
Aside from heavy and ongoing training, life has been very busy for me! I have started my internship year within the strength and conditioning team at Sheffield Hallam university and I am thoroughly enjoying my time programming and coaching for university teams. More recently I have been appointed lead strength and conditioning coach for the Sheffield Sharks professional basketball team which will be an excellent experience for me this year. I will also be travelling with the team to a pre-season tournament in Portugal during the first week of September which will be an unforgettable experience for myself to be a part of and as well as setting up my future career.”
The DRF will continue to follow Joe’s progress in his chosen sport.
