In the Pool

Greatest achievement to date: My 100m backstroke swim at the Paralympic trials where I made the time for Beijing, that was my proudest moment. It was a British record too so I was the fastest in Britain after that

Aspiration: To win Paralympic gold. To stand on top of the podium and be best in the World and to break the World record

Who has been greatest influence on you: Coaches and parents

Out of the Pool

Family members: My dad is a marathon runner and my sister is a top age group swimmer in Scotland

One thing you can’t live without: My trunks

Tip for the top: If you want to make it to the top you really have to work for it, when you go to a competition there’s no substitute for knowing you’ve worked hard and couldn’t have done any harder. Always than the people around you, your parents and coach because without them you wouldn’t get anywhere.
