Sabrina has the condition speech dyspraxia,
Which caused a mild intellectual impairment,
And so competes in athletics throwing events,
Specialising in the shot put discipline, skill.
Her brother who competed in sports games,
Inspired her to join a club - she was eleven.
At junior level in Brazil, 2014, she won gold,
But in Doha, at the seniors, she came fourth.
Rio was her stage ‘cos she did herself proud,
By throwing a PB of 12.94 to win the bronze,
And she was the first Welsh athlete at Rio,
From TeamGB to win any medal of any type.
