    导出博客文章Theres more to England international Eboni Beckford-Chambers than just netball.
    I was lucky enough to spend a day in her very busy life for Sportswomen as she
    manages a professional career in a law firm alongside the demands of being an
    elite athlete. Heres the story of an average day in her life. The alarm first
    sounds at 5:50am in the morning, when the England and Bath defender allows
    herself another precious 10 minutes of rest. Shes out of bed at six and quickly
    prepares for her first of two training sessions that day. Half-an-hour later we
    arrive at Bath University, where Beckford-Chambers spends an hour in the weights
    room. The 27-year-old spends an hour lifting at Bath University I grab a word
    with her strength and conditioning coach, Peter Gascoigne, who tells me its all
    about improving her power, speed and strength.At this time of year theres a lot
    of games, so were looking to maintain her strength while realising the power
    shes got naturally, he tells me.Its approaching 8am and Im already exhausted
    (and Im only a spectator), as an energised Beckford-Chambers almost skips to the
    showers to get ready to begin her day as a legal assistant.After a bus trip and
    a short six-minute walk through Baths city centre, we arrive at her law firm -
    Mogers Drewett Solicitors.Were greeted by her boss, the firms partner, Maeve
    England. England immediately apologises for missing her employees match against
    Australia the day before. The defender played every match of the tri-series with
    Australia Beckford-Chambers, who played in all three matches in Englands Test
    series with Australia in January, says: Well, we didnt get the result we wanted,
    but the team played well, so Im happy with that.England explained how Mogers
    Drewett Solicitors supports and even encourages athletes like Beckford-Chambers
    to excel in both of her chosen careers. Ebonis skills on the court translate
    very well into a legal career, in that shes a very determined person, shes
    driven and quite tenacious, she explains.Beckford-Chambers, who joined the firm
    in November, is a legal assistant in the commercial litigation department and
    hopes to qualify as a solicitor in the next few years. Her day-to-day tasks
    involve drafting court forms, correspondence and client meetings.Its clear
    Beckford-Chambers loves her job. She says: Its varied. One minute you might be
    going to court for a trial or hearing, the next minute you might be at your desk
    drafting court forms or talking to clients. Beckford-Chambers joins her
    team-mates for the annual Team Bath photo Its approaching 1pm when
    Beckford-Chambers says shes off to meet some friends for lunch. We walk less
    than 200 metres to a pizzeria, where five of her Bath team-mates are waiting.
    Team Bath vice-captain Asha Francis is among them.We all sit down and I ask
    Beckford-Chambers about her diet. You are what you eat and I feel much healthier
    and more energised when Im eating the right foods. She laughs and admits: Every
    once in a while, Ill come to lunch with the girls, and well have a treat like a
    pizza.I ask Francis about Beckford-Chambers and what she brings to the team. The
    vice-captain is full of praise for her team-mate: She inspires us all to
    constantly be better at training and all the things we have to do outside of
    training as well. Beckford-Chambers coach says maintaining strength is key at
    the start of the year After lunch we head back to the firm, where
    Beckford-Chambers doesnt stop until 4:45pm.We head back through the city centre,
    past the historic Pump Rooms and Bath Abbey. The walk is timed perfectly,
    because as we get to her stop, the bus is just pulling up.After a 15-minute
    journey were back at the university, where Beckford-Chambers changes her attire
    for the third time that day.She comes out wearing her England jumper and
    matching navy three-quarter leggings. We arrive in time for a massage at 6pm on
    the dot. Beckford-Chambers tells me she visits either the physio or masseuse
    most evenings before her on-court session. Beckford-Chambers flanked by Pamela
    Cookey (l), Sasha Corbin and Jo Harten at 2013 Sportswomen of the Year awards
    Just over half an hour later shes on the court with her team-mates, warming up
    and getting ready to train. Its actually quite good to have a run around after a
    long day at work, she says. I watch on as Bath coach Anna Stembridge puts her
    team through their paces.When the session finally comes to an end, Im surprised
    to see Beckford-Chambers still smiling. More than 15 hours have passed since I
    arrived at her house that morning. Im pleased when she tells me that its time to
    head home. She then adds: And get ready to do it all again tomorrow.Before we
    say our goodbyes, I shake my head in disbelief and ask her how she maintains
    such a busy schedule. Her response is quick: I guess I lead a double life, and I
    wouldnt have it any other way. Also See: Vitality Superleague fixtures Table
