Why did you begin your sport?

I grew up at a swimming complex and my dad is my coach so it was kind of inevitable ( or unavoidable) that I would start swimming! :)

Do you have any pre-competition routines or rituals?

I drink green tea before competition instead of coffee. I always have my goggles strapped above my bun and have to make sure the straps are tucked in.

What is your most memorable sporting achievement?

2nd at the Commonwealth Games 2010 and qualifying for the 2012 olympics

Who is your hero / idol, and why? Have you ever met them?

My dad. I have never met someone with so much passion and determination.

Who has been the most influential person or people in your career and why?

Mum and dad as they have been the most supportive and motivating people in my life and would not be where I am today without their love and devotion to my passion.

Do you have any hobbies away from your sport?

I love French and travel to France when I can

What is your sporting ambition?

To win a gold at the 2018 Commonwealth Games
