In the pool
Favourite event: 10m highboard - both the individual and synchro events because I enjoy the challenge of improving my own performance and the challenges that come with training and competing synchro.
Finest ever performance: Either the Canada Grand Prix in 2011 where I had a new PB of 341.00 or the Arena Cup in Sweden in 2008 where I came first in the 10m Synchro.
First senior international meet: The Arena Cup in Sweden in 2008 - I competed in the 10m Synchro with Suzanne Collins.
Role models: All of my teammates are role models. I see how hard they train, how they cope with all aspects of the sport and how we support each other.
My aspirations are: To be the best I can at my sport and to compete at the London 2012 Olympic Games.
