Additional information / What would you like people to know about you?

My sister swam with my local club (Boldmere) and I used to go and watch her, and every week the coach kept asking me to swim with them as they were short of boys. I eventually agreed and before I knew it I was part of their Diddy team regularly competing. Once this happened I got the swimming bug, moved up the squads and became more competitive and wanted to win. My preferred discipline is 100m and 200m breaststroke. I train nine two-hour pool sessions; three one-hour gym sessions; eight 30-minute core land work sessions. Most influential person is Michael PHELPS (USA) because he is an inspiring, amazing swimmer and the greatest Olympian of all time. Most proud of becoming a national champion. Hero is David BECKHAM (GBR) as he is the utmost professional in everything he does. If I wasn't an athlete, I'd continue to play football. My favourite food is pizza.
