In the Pool
Greatest achievement to date: World Senior Gold Medallist, Triple World Series Medallist 2008/9.
Aspiration: I would like to be an Olympic medallist in the 2012 games.
Training Regime: I wake up at half seven am down to the pool by 9am, do an hour and a half dry land training (like trampolining etc). We get back into the water for about half eleven for an hour and a half then break for lunch. We ge back in the water for about two for an afternoon session for about an hour.
When did you begin swimming: I got into diving because I loved the water and enjoyed throwing myself off objects. I also learnt to swim as a young child at the age of two because I just loved the water.

Ultimate relaxation: Getting into a jacuzzi in Miami with a Pina Colada!
One thing you can’t live without: Food
Tip for the top: If you want to be the best you have to train harder than the rest.
Life after swimming: I would like to help others who are less fortunate than me and work with languages and travel the world.
