Participating in the European Youth Olympic Festival (EYOF) 2013 in Utrecht, Netherlands. This was the first international multi-sport event that I had participated in and came home with 2 silver and 1 bronze medal in the relay team events.
Initially I just wanted to learn to swim and be safe in the water for holidays. Lots of favourite Olympic memories: Michael PHELPS (USA) in 2008 (8 gold), Super Saturday in 2012 (ENNIS, FARAH, RUTHERFORD, all GBR), Kelly HOLMES (GBR) in 2004 (double Olympic champion). First Olympic memory was as a five year old, staying up late twice to watch Kelly HOLMES win two Olympic gold medals. True inspiration. My preferred discipline is 200m freestyle. Superstition is to shave everywhere and make sure favourite music is on iPod. Ignore everyone in holding room prior to race. My sporting hero is Michael PHELPS (USA) as he has achieved so much and looks as if there's still plenty more to come. This guy is unbelievable. If I wasn't an athlete, I'd have more free time. Would like to think I would participate in extra-curricular activities at school, mainly sport. My favourite food is chicken lasagne and rice pudding.
