It would have to be that put the effort in during the training and you will see the results. To ensure you can do the best training, eat well and within ½ an hour of finishing training to recover

It would have to be wining at British Championships this year in 13-14 age group.

Which app do you use the most?

Although I swim a lot I am still a teen – it would have to be snapchat to talk to my friends

Who is your inspiration?

I don’t have a specific person but growing up in swimming it was my grandad or my big sister Molly, but its more the qualities inside people so I actually have many ‘inspirations’

Do you have any tips for other athletes?

Keep doing what you love and working hard for what you want to achieve.
You do things for you and not your mum or your coach – YOU! (That line was stolen from my coach – Maciej!)
