Elan is no ordinary little girl and loves to take on a challenge, especially when she can dress up as a Superhero! Elan is a seasoned veteran at the Superhero Challenge, this being the third year that she has taken part. However this year, she is taking part with a slight difference, she is taking part in the ‘Celebrity Challenge’ with one of her all-time favourite sporting heroes, gold medallist Paralympian Sophie Christiansen.
We caught up with Elan to find out how she was getting on. Here is what she had to say:
Q: Superhero and Sidekick’s Name?
A: Elan Wonder Williams & my faithful from a distance sidekick Alex the Great. Plus my family super family, Team Williams.
Q: Gadget(s) of Choice?
A: I have my super duper Haze Trix bike (I love it!), my mega race runner and my kayak to speed through that water. Try and keep up with me!
Q: Superhero power?
A: Will Power. I can & will do it!
Q: Why you wanted to take part in this years challenge?
A: This is my third year of doing this challenge. I love it as who cares how you look and move, we can smash this together!
Q: What is your favourite thing about the challenge?
A: I love everything, but my ultimate favourite bit is to be amongst all the Paralympians’ we see on TV. They are like just there in front of you!!
Q: How is the challenge going so far?
A: It was a slow start for us as we have been busy preparing hay bales and getting in extra horse riding practice. But look out we are now ready to unleash Wonder Williams!!
Q: How does it feel to have been teamed up with one of your favourite sporting heroes?
A: Sophie Christiansen is amazing. So competitive and I feel energetic just like her. I’m hoping all her gold medals rub off on me!!
Q: How does it feel to be doing the challenge at home this year rather than at Dorney Lake?
A: Well I have lots of space to do it on and fingers crossed that the nearby lake opens soon so that I can go swimming. I have to say though, I am really looking forward to going to Dorney Lake again.
Q: Any tips for other people taking part in the challenge or words of wisdom?
A: Just do it & enjoy. You can only do what you can and remember to smile.
Q: Anything else you want to say about this years’ event?
Let’s do it!!!! And thank you for helping me do the best I can do.
Good luck Elan. We can’t wait to see you how you get on #findyourpower
