Records Held

Event Classification Location Date Time Record
50m Freestyle S10 Beijing 14/09/2008 25.10 BR


In the Pool

Greatest achievement to date: The heat swim in the 100m Freestyle in Beijing. I needed a two second personal best to make the 34 point relay team and knocked two and a half seconds off my personal best

Aspiration: To put the 50m Freestyle record out of the reach of anyone else for a long time and continue to be the fastest disabled athlete in the water

Who has been greatest influence on you: My little brother

Out of the Pool

Tip for the top: You have to push yourself. No one else can really do that
