Starting out in the world of classical ballet Jemima’s sporting career took quite a turn when she decided to give multi-sport racing a go! With a competitive nature and love for all things sporty, Jemima had some huge successes in her first season. She won her second ever event out right and qualified for the European Age Group championships at both sprint and standard distance.
This year, Jemima has stepped up the challenge, and the distance, as she takes on the acclaimed Ironman 70.3 and middle-distance race circuit in the UK and abroad. At her first middle distance event Jemima took 2nd place in her age group and gained qualification for the World and European Championships. She has not been in the sport long but she has her eyes set on gaining a professional race licence in the next few seasons.
Of Greepers Jemima says:
I have got to say that Greeper Laces were really good in T2! In all honesty I didn’t even have to think about it and barely remember doing them up! So I guess that is the biggest positive! I don’t think I should have to think about laces on race day! They were really comfortable and, in fact, I didn’t get sore feet at all nor blisters (which I had expected). I think this was because my feet were pretty glued into my shoes with the right tension so they didn’t move about too much. Definitely a winner!
