Emma started sprinting at the age of 14 and went on to have success at regional, national and International level, winning multiple Midlands and British
University medals, competing for both England and Great Britain in the 60m, 100m and 4 x 100m. In 2014, shortly after winning the Women’s Midland 100m
title, she suffered unexplained acute liver failure, requiring a life saving liver transplant. Within a year she was back racing and went on to win
six gold medals at the 2015 World Transplant Games in Argentina! The following year she was the first ever transplanted athlete to qualify for the
British Indoor Championships, making the semi finals of the 60m.
Emma is the reigning World Transplant Champion in four
events, and was honoured to be named women’s captain for the British Team in 2017. Her goals are to retain her titles in the 2019 World Transplant
Games in Newcastle in August, and she is excited to be competing in Newport when the British Games come to her home town in July 2019.
Emma says, "I’m so excited to be supported by The Treatment Room, who will be providing me with invaluable therapy and treatment in the run up to the
World Games in 2019. It’s also great to be working with a company based in my home town of Newport, with access to excellent local and convenient treatment".
