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

My brother started diving about two years before I did and after watching on the balcony for that time I decided I may as well have a go. Train six days a week. can be up to 21 hours. Superstition is to not cross anybody on the stairs, certain trunks are 'lucky' or 'unlucky', I have to do certain drills before certain dives to make sure they go well. Injuries include two operations on both heels/ankles as I had an extra bone in both feet, which kept me out for about two-three months. Also had oedema on my growth plates in both wrists which meant I couldn’t dive head first for four months.. Most influential person is my brother, Jack, as he got me into the sport and I train with him daily. Most proud of winning Dresden youth international meet on platform in boys' group B with a PB. Hero is Rosa PARKS for being a legend and not giving her seat up on that bus. If I wasn't an athlete, I'd be a dancer/actor
