WHAT IS SOMETHING INTERESTING THAT PEOPLE DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU?

I can pop both my shoulders out. I spend a lot of time on my own with my dogs, they are my favourite things in the world.

HOBBIES OUTSIDE OF SWIMMING:

I just hang out with my dogs… haha no, I really like Pilates and reading. Crime books and horror movies.

WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO DO AFTER YOUR SWIMMING CAREER?

I am going to go back and studying a diploma of rehab and studio pilates. Its helped so much with my rehab and I think it’s a good transition to the next stage of my life.

WHO IS THE MOST FAMOUS PERSON YOU HAVE EVER MET?

I’ve been pretty lucky to have met some incredible people throughout my career. Like Usain bolt, LeBron James, Serena Williams.

FAVOURITE QUOTE?

I have little mantras for this time of my life. My phone background for Commonwealth Games trials was ‘You Can’.
