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

Was introduced to swimming when I was chosen at school swimming to take a trial for my local club. I train nine to 10 times a week. Most influential person is my dad - supporting me through ups and downs in my career. He is always there for me, he has taught me to learn as much as possible about my competitors and not only to look at the people ahead of me in the rankings but to have an awareness of who is climbing up. Most proud of breaking the 200m freestyle 16 years old age group record. If I wasn't an athlete, I'd be a millionaire.
