Shortly after I arrived at Heathrow from Japan, I joined the England squad at Gatwick for our trip to Konstanz For the European Championships in Germany.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, there are less people in this year’s squad than last year’s, however, those that were available have trained extremely hard for this competition and I have high hopes for the outcomes.

On Thursday, we all trained for nearly two hours in the local park under the sun, it was 25 degrees.

Today (Friday), we trained at the local leisure centre where most of the other countries had gathered; this gave them an opportunity  to check out the competition.

The Championships are starting tomorrow (Saturday) at 9am and we are as ready as we can be.  We are looking forward to it.
