Storm says

'Becky's passion for sport started at a very young age. At school, she competed in all sports, such as football, netball and athletics, as well as being heavily involved in water sports. She has been a Personal Trainer in the fitness industry for over 10 years which is where her love from CrossFit stemmed from.

It's quite phenomenal to think that she only took up crossfit 2 years ago and already has so many achievements to her name. It takes a talented, dedicated and truly motivated individual to get to her level after such a short time. I have been lucky enough to watch her train and compete and it's of no surprise that she has become such a success in CrossFit. Aside from her fiercely competitive nature, she has to be one of the most inviting and humble athletes that you will come across.

Having qualified for the European Regionals for the last two years, she very much has her sights set on returning in 2015. Aside from this, she unsurprisingly wants to try her hand at Olympic weight lifting. With the nickname of Quadzilla, and if you saw her squat, you wouldn't count out Rio 2016 being a near future goal!'
