My name is Camron Lyttle and I’m a sprinter who currently runs for Bexley Athletics Club. I started athletics in 2008 at the age of nine, right after the Beijing Olympics. Up until London 2012 athletics was only something I did for fun, however that changed when I was selected to run for Kent at the English Schools Championships. It was my first national event and I got heavily defeated, finishing 5th in my semi-final which left me both gutted and determined to do better in the future. Since then I believe I’ve had a very successful athletics journey so far. Currently at school I study physics and maths at A-level and sport at BTEC and I am hoping to study Sport Technology at University.

Most memorable sporting achievement to date

Winning the English Schools Championships in 2015 as it was my fourth time of trying to win the event and I defeated my rival who had beaten me in the previous three years.

Biggest sporting disappointment to date

Getting injured at the start of the 2016 season, which prevented me capitalising on my indoor season form, and as a result I was unable to be selected for the Great Britain European Youth Athletics Team, as my time wasn’t fast enough.
