“After being scared of water and only learning to swim at the age of 8, I never expected to later be part of the GB swim team for 8 years. 

From the start I was told that I was a natural at swimming, and progressed fairly quickly through the club levels at Wyre Forest Swimming Club. I enjoyed taking part in any sport, but swimming was always the one that I loved the most.

I had many ups and downs in my career, missing the Beijing Olympic Games at 20 was tough to deal with, but I motivated myself to get back into training and be fully focused. To make the London Olympic Games 4 years later was a massive highlight of my career. I felt proud to finish 5th in the Women’s 4x100m Freestyle relay, and 9th by a tiny 0.16 of a second in the 50m Freestyle, although the small margin was very frustrating. But that’s sport! And I love it!

It’s a great thing to be able to pass on a vast amount of experience and knowledge to the next generation of competitive swimmers by being a part of Swim Swift Elite and SwimCamps.”
