My national championships experience where I came second in solo and figures
I started swimming as a young child and met two of my closest friends there. We decided together that we were fed up of normal swimming and we wanted to try something different. My preferred discipline is solo, closely followed by team and duet. Most influential person is my head coach Alison PRATT (GBR) for being motivating and pushing me in the right ways and being supportive. Most proud of competing internationally in Croatia with the England squad where we came first, and also being selected to swim my solo and represent my country abroad. My heroes are my parents for being so supportive and giving so much time and money towards my sporting career. If I wasn't an athlete, I'd spend all my time shopping. My favourite food is my dad’s chicken strips and crispy chips. Competing at the European Games will be an amazing experience. It is a fabulous opportunity - especially as I may not have a chance to compete in the Olympic Games. This is the best and nearest thing to it. It also gives me the opportunity to represent GB internationally, and gain skills and ideas from other countries - not only for me, but to take back to my club. Also it would make my family and friends proud.
