IN THE POOL
Favourite event: Synchro. Because it is with Becky Gallantree, who is more experienced and is confident so can show me what to do.
Finest ever performance: A couple of years ago, at the G-Star competition in Leeds. I got 177 points over three dives. I don’t think I have dived like that before. I learnt a new dive and did really well with it.
First senior international meet: February 2010, FINA Grand Prix in Moscow. Then did the Canada Grand Prix followed by the China World Cup.
Role models: Becky Gallantree. If she drops a dive she just comes back with a better one. She’s laid back and chilled at competitions and is a great person to be around.
My aspirations are: To go to the Olympics in 2012 would be amazing.
OUT OF THE POOL
Tip for the top: Train really hard and always give 100% effort, and enjoy it. No point doing it if you don’t enjoy it.
If I wasn’t a diver I would be: Probably athletics. I really enjoy doing that.
Life after diving: I'd quite like to be a physio.
Would most like to meet: Russell Brand. He seems fun to be around.
Most prized possession: My ipod. Never apart from it! I think I have about 500 songs on there, maybe 600.
Biggest influence on career: My family.
Music: RnB. I like Eminem and Rhianna
