Daryl Neita
Sport: Athletics

Daryl, at just 19 years old competed at her first Olympics out in Rio. Daryll came 4th in her 100m heat running a time of 11.41 seconds, so unfortunately didn’t progress to the next round, but it would have been a very positive experience for her that she can bring to the rest of her career.

More success was had in the 4x100m relay in which Daryll ran the anchor leg bringing Team GB home for a bronze medal. Team GB hadn’t won an Olympic medal in the women’s 4x100m relay for 32 years, so it was a fantastic achievement for Daryll to be part of.

This is Daryll’s first year as an ambassador, and Greenwich Starting Blocks have high hopes for her and are looking forward to continuing the support.
