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

I train six days a week for 40 hours a week. Injuries include torn ligament in my left knee resulting in no training for one month. Most influential people are my parents. Most proud of coming second in the U17's GB water polo first international tournament. My hero is Martine WRIGHT (GBR sitting volleyball Paralympic team.) She lost her legs in the 7/7 bombings in London and turned what happened to her into a tremendous positive. She has a defiance and determination to fully exploit the life she nearly lost. If I wasn't an athlete, I'd coach and teach other athletes.
