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

Before I started synchronised swimming I did acrobatic gymnastics and swimming. I saw a notice at my local swimming pool for synchro and decided to join with my sister. Synchro combined what I had learnt as a gymnast and a swimmer so it was a pretty perfect sport for me. My preferred discipline is duet & team events. Superstition I have is before I swim an event is to make sure I'm hydrated. I do some stretching and walk through my routines in my head. If I'm with other swimmers in my team or duet I walk through routines with them and try to hype everyone up for a great swim. I am most proud of my first international event in Croatia 2014, where I came 3rd in the solo event and our team came 1st. My hero is Tom DALEY (GBR). I admire his ambition and determination. If I wasn't an athlete, I'd work towards a career in dance.
