Achievements to date
I am currently studying three A-levels alongside my swimming; Biology, Psychology and PE, I’m really enjoying them and find them hugely interesting they also complement my swimming tremendously well. I’ve particularly enjoyed the biopsychology topic in psychology. I am also completing an Extended Project qualification which I have decided to do sporting performance and the nature and nurture debate.
When the rare occasion occurs that I have some free time I enjoy spending time with my friends and when we do have some sun, sitting outside with my two cats. Alongside swimming I enjoy going to the gym as it is very different from swimming which makes it interesting, but it still develops and tone the muscles needed for swimming. To also keep my brain ticking and occupied I also learnt how to juggle!
My most memorable sporting achievement to date was reaching the Target Tokyo final at the 2016 Olympic trials in a personal best time.
My biggest sporting disappointment to date would be coming 4th in the 100 and 200 breaststroke at Nationals in 2015.
My most respected sportsperson is Michael Phelps (swimmer) as he used sport to make him a better person and putting him in a better place and by doing that becoming the most successful Olympian all time. He was very graceful when he lost his Olympic title in the 100m butterfly in 2012.
Before I compete I splash myself with the pool water and then come up into a forward bend.
