IN THE POOL
Favourite event: Probably the 200m IM as it’s shorter. It’s also probably my ‘third’ event so there is sort of less pressure on this one to perform.
Finest ever performance: Breaking the Short Course Commonwealth Record in the 400m IM in Leeds. I was not expecting it. It came just after the World Champs in Rome.
I hadn’t really done that much since Rome so was hoping for a British Record. I just went and did it, everything went well and it was quite a surprise to go that quick!
Who has been greatest influence on you: My parents
First senior international meet: European Championships 2006. I enjoyed it. I didn't swim that well though as I had been ill just before the event.
I remember there was a massive monsoon which they had to cancel a session for - I remember everyone running out of the stands.
OUT OF THE POOL
Tip for the top: Don't give up - perseverance is the key
If I wasn't a swimmer: I would probably still be a sportsman. I played a lot of tennis when I was younger.
Music: Anything rock, rap and hip hop.
