How did you get into your sport? Because my Father, older brothers and Grandad were all great swimmers, and my family was heavily involved, and I had a love for the water from a very young age.

What do you love about the sport? I enjoy the social side of swimming the most as I get to meet new people and connect with people from various different areas and I enjoy the fitness aspect and the motivation to succeed it provides me with.

What inspires you? Success, fitness and my role models.
