News: BBC Wales Sports Personality of the Year

Hollie also won Lincolnshire Sports personality of the year in 2016

Update: IPC World Championships Doha 2015

Hollie competed in the IPC World Championships in Doha on the 31/10/15.

She was out to retain her World Champion title won in Lyon in 2013.

Hollie was up against very strong competition; the World Record Holder and the 2011 World Champion were both in her event and going in Number One in the rankings. Throwing on the last day of the competition, the pressure for Hollie to perform well was tremendous, but she kept her composure.

Hollie was in the best shape of her life both physically and mentally and had just lost over a stone in weight to give her that extra confidence boost.

Hollie not only gained her second World title but broke the championship record twice; her best throw being 40.53cm, just shy of the World record! But the 40 degree heat and humidity was always against a World Record throw out there.

She is now (after a week off) back in full time training for RIO 2016 with less than 10 months before the competition starts.

European Championships 2014

Hollie's Javelin event was withdrawn from the European Championships in Swansea. which began on Monday 18th August 2014.

Hollie had also been invited to the Sainsburys' IPC Grand Prix in Birmingham and yet again her event was pulled out due to the games being mixed with the able bodied event over one day instead of two.

However, this enabled Hollie to enter into the IWAS Junior World Championships 10th Anniversary Games at Stoke Mandeville where she smashed her Junior Javelin World Record with a throw of 38.25m taking the Gold Medal in a mixed category!

Hollie now continues to hold both the Junior World Champion and Senior World Champion title and is now ranked 1st in 2014.

Hollie also threw the discus and gained gold (even though she does not even train for this event and has not thrown for the past 2 years), putting herself on the Senior Discus World Rankings at number 1!

At London 2012, Hollie stunned crowds by acheiving a Personal Best, a fantastic achievement following a long string of successes. Not only that, Hollie has previously been named as 'One to Watch ' by SportAid!

Before that, Hollie has accumulated a phenominal array of Medals and has represented her country in Beijing at the age of just 14, in front of crowds of approximately 90,000. Click to view all of Hollie's Statistics or view her In The Media.

Hollie is already in training for London and Tokyo, dedicating the next 4 years to an intense regime to make the most of her talent - 2016 is going to be Hollie's year!
