Did you know?
- When she was seven, a swimming teacher noticed that Katie was doublejointed and suggested she take up synchronised swimming due to excellent flexibility.
- Katie did ballet as a child and believes this aided her learning of synchronised swimming.
- Katie is the youngest member of the Team GB synchronised swimmers. She remembers being at school when they announced that London was picked for the Games. At the time she was only 10 years old and remembers thinking 'wow'. She hadn't realised how much this would really affect her!
Kate's international career has been on an upward spiral since winning the junior trials at the 2008 National Championships. She competed in the duet, team and combination at the 2009 European Junior Championships in Gloucester, finishing 11th, 10th and eighth respectively. She also made the step up to senior international level in 2009, competing for Great Britain at the World Trophy in Montreal. She cemented her place in the squad in 2010, finishing sixth in the Team event at the European Championships then eighth in the Team at the FINA World Cup in Changshu. In 2011, she was part of the Combination team to win bronze in Sheffield at the European Champions Cup and also travelled and competed with the Team and in the Combination at her first World Championships in Shanghai.
