ambition

Combining high performance sport with high academic ambition is challenging. I am determined to represent my country at the highest level of international competition (Europeans, Commonwealth, Worlds and ultimately the Olympics) and maintain my status as the British Champion of my selected events - while studying for a Master’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering at Bath University. Being part of Team GB under Coach Dave McNulty at a University ranked highly for my chosen field of study will play a big part in my realising both my goals.

My own - and GB Swimming’s - expectations of my performance couldn’t be higher. British Swimming believe in my podium potential for both the 2020 Tokyo and 2024 Paris Olympics. It is my ambition and dream to represent my country at the highest level of international competition.

in the news

at home

Home is Taplow, Bucks with my mum, four siblings and four dogs. My eldest sister now swims for Duke University in the US, my youngest brother swims competitively for my club, Maidenhead, and my two middle siblings also swam competitively (to Regional and National level) before switching to concentrate on other sports. We are a very active family.

In term time I live in Bath, as a member of the GB Swim Team and British Swimming Elite programme (the next generation of potential Olympians). The ongoing support of my family (and previous club and coach) is a key part of my ongoing progress and success.
