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.
