IN THE POOL
Finest ever performance: British Championships in Sheffield 2010. I prepared well and was mentally ready. I had nothing to lose and did my dives really well.
First senior international meet: I went to Moscow for the Fina Grand Prix.
Role models: I have always admired Chris Hoy and Chris Cussiter
Aspirations: Go to the Olympics and be able to do the dives to the best of my ability. Hopefully that will be enough to get me a medal. Learn lots of new dives and be able to do them to a high standard.
OUT OF THE POOL
Tip for the top: Just to try things. Don’t be afraid. Diving is a scary sport. Your coach won’t allow you to do a new dive if they didn’t think you were ready. Be brave and enjoy it.
If I wasn’t a diver I would be: I wanted to do ballet when I was younger. Gave it up because of diving, so some form of dance I think.
Life after diving: I would like to stay involved in sport. Maybe a physio? Certainly want to keep the link with sport.
Would most like to meet: Jingjing Guo, best female Springboard diver in the world.
Most prized possession: Not sure, probably my rabbits. I have two.
Biggest influence on career: My mum.
Music: Michael Buble and Justin Beiber.
