In the Pool

Greatest achievement to date: Winning silver in the 100m Freestyle in Beijing because it made me feel as if the training and hard work had paid off.

Aspiration: To be the best that I can be

Out of the Pool

One thing you can’t live without: Family

Tip for the top: Train hard, never give in to any pain it's always worth it in the end

Life after swimming? Go to university and continue in other sports


Band/Music: Bit of everything.
