What do you like most about your sport? The opportunities it has presented, the life lessons it has taught me and the constant challenge I can pose to myself. I’ve been able to travel the world, making incredible friends and learn to push through tough times, dedicate myself to something I’m passionate about and challenge myself each day.
Who/what inspires you to achieve your best in sport? All my life I’ve had a dream to be the best I can be and about something I love, which is swimming. I want to be the best I can be and leave nothing behind when the day comes to retire. I want to be able to inspire others. Also, my uncle and family support around me who have always been there along the way and taught me so much and helped enable me to get as far as I have in swimming.
