Did you know?
- Olivia learned to swim at a young age and loved being in the water. Her elder sister joined Portsmouth Victoria Synchro Club and from then on Olivia couldn't wait to join too!
- During training Olivia sometimes wears a 3kg weight belt to strengthen herself even more!
- In 2007 Olivia, aged just 16, moved to Farnborough to centralise her training and become a full-time athlete. Olivia got married in 2011 to her long term partner Roberto Federici.
Alongside Jenna Randall, Olivia has formed one of the most succesful British synchronised swimming duet partnerships in history. The pair made their big break at the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne, finishing fourth in the Duet competition. Four years later, Olivia was standing on the podium having won silver with Randall at the 2010 Commonwealth Games. She competed at her first Olympic Games at Beijing in 2008, narrowly missing out on a final spot as she and Randall finished 14th. Olivia has also competed at three World Championships in 2007, 2009 and last season and is a key swimmer for the Brits in the Team event.
