Impulse Leisure are supporting international hurdler Hayley Mclean in her quest to represent Great Britain in the 2023 World Athletics Championships

The 2013 Junior European 400m hurdles champ has kicked this season’s training off with Impulse Leisure in preparation for the competition later this year in Budapest, with her sights set on representing Team GB in the Paris 2024 Olympics. 

Impulse Leisure was pleased to renew their continued support of internationally recognised 400-metre hurdler Hayley McLean as she continues her training to qualify for the Great Britain World Championship team. 

Hayley had an impressive start to her hurdles career, claiming several junior titles, most notably winning gold in the 400-metre hurdles at the 2013 European Athletics Junior Championships in Rieti.

In the ten years since, McLean has continued to represent Great Britain in the women’s 400m hurdles at an elite level. Hayley said, “Last year was an amazing season for me, as I was selected to run for GB at the European Championships in Munich and in January of this year, was selected for the 4×400 relay for the European Athletics Indoor Championships in Turkey.” All of which her friends, family and the team at Impulse Leisure couldn’t be prouder of.

The high-quality facilities at Corringham Leisure have not only been able to provide the local community with an impeccable health and wellbeing space but also athletes that compete at an international level. 

McLean continued: “The continued support from the Impulse Leisure team at Corringham has been invaluable to me. I have been able to not only use the gym, as part of my Olympic training but also the pool and yoga classes, to aid my recovery – which has enabled me to stay injury free throughout the year.” 

Speaking on behalf of Impulse Leisure, CEO Karl Hayes said: “we are thrilled to be able to renew Hayley’s membership with Impulse Leisure Corringham. It has been a pleasure to watch her develop her career over the past decade from a junior athlete competing at the top of her game into the hurdler she is today. We hope her strength and determination inspire our members who are also able to witness her achievements. It is motivating to know that our state-of-the-art facilities can support elite-level athletes on their journey to success”.  

We wish Hayley all the best in her mission to quality for the 2023 World Athletics Championships and Paris Olympics 2024, and look forward to supporting her training.
