British trampolinist Laura Gallagher has transformed into a completely different person. In her first appearance on SportSpiel the 2017 British Champion bravely opened up about the mental health struggles she faced that subsequently led to her break from the sport. In particular there was a nagging sense that she hadn't fulfilled her potential and that she felt like a failure. But fast forward to now and Laura is in a completely different place and has closed a door. Speaking with Will Moulton she talks about the response from friends and family following her mental health admission and her efforts to close the door on that part of her life. She also talks her new main aim - qualifying for her first Olympic Games in Tokyo next year.
