In the Pool

Greatest achievement to date: Qualifying for Beijing 2008 in 100m Freestyle because it's the best feeling when you look at the scoreboard and realise you've done it!

Aspiration: To compete in the 2012 Paralympics but to achieve as best as I can along the way.

Who has been greatest influence on you: My coaches

Out of the Pool

One thing you can’t live without: Family and friends

Tip for the top: Train hard, race hard.

Life after swimming? Another sport and a decent job.
