In The Pool
Favourite event: 3m Springboard
Finest ever performance: Winning two gold medals at the British Gas Diving Champs 2014. It was just a great day and I still don’t think I believe it happened.
Role models: Leon Taylor, Ben Swain and He Chong.
My aspirations are: To reach my full potential and achieve as much as I can in diving.
Out Of The Pool
Tip for the top: Remember to always stay positive because no matter how bad you think something is, there is always good in it.
If I wasn’t a diver I would be: In full-time education but I can’t imagine life outside of diving at the moment.
Life after diving: I want to finish my education and go to uni. I don’t know what I would study yet. I think I would like to stay close to sport and still involved in City of Sheffield in some way.
Would most like to meet: David Hume.
Most prized possession: A Green and Benz pendant that represents my diving career.
Biggest influence on career: The group of divers that I have grown up with and competed against - Jack Laugher, Jack Haslam, Josh Dowd and Yona Knight-Wisdom. They are in the same age group as me and we all pushed each other.
Band/music: I have really enjoyed Daft Punk’s first two albums. I change my mind regularly on what I like to listen to. However music is important to me.
Food: All food. I love all food.
Hobbies: Languages and playing the drums and guitar.
Films: Pulp Fiction.
