In the Pool
Greatest achievement to date: My Commonwealth Record in the 400IM at the Olympic Trials. I looked at the clock, saw 4minutes 12 seconds on the scoreboard and thought ‘wow’. Earlier in the meet my swims were pretty average so I was just hoping to make the qualifying time. The time was such a shock.
Aspiration: To keep enjoying swimming. If I am happy I can swim well.
Who has been greatest influence on you: My parents and my swimming coach
Out of the Pool
One thing you can’t live without: Mobile phone and my dog called Codie. He's so naughty.
Tip for the top: I’m not there yet!
Life after swimming: No idea, that’s a long way off. I hope!
Band/Music: My ipod is quite random contains lots of tracks. I listen to dance music before I swim.
