Phoebe`s News Page
As the season gets underway it has been announced that Phoebe has been selected to be a mentee for The True Athlete Project (https://www.thetrueathleteproject.org/). She has been very fortunate to be paired with Keith Cook who will support her as she works towards her goals and helps to develop a more positive and compassionate approach to sport for all.
Just as the 2018-19 fencing season started Phoebe was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome also known as ME. She spent most of the season resting with very few attendances at competitive events.
This season 2019-20 Phoebe is almost back at normal health levels and has moved to London to train full time with coach Chris Galesloot. Although not quite at full fitness and following a long period of absence from training Phoebe has already achieved an 8th and 10th place at two U20 competitions. She is looking forward to what the rest of the season will bring!
Phoebe is pictured here with Dr Raymond Perrin who treated her for ME during the 2018-19 season. Both Phoebe and Dr Perrin are very pleased with how she has responded to the treatment and Phoebe is now well enough to return to training full time
