Additional information

NASTY BREAK
In gym at Victorian Institute of Sport in Melbourne in 2013 doing calf raises off a box when box collapsed and middle finger on right hand fell between the weight plates in a machine. Every ligament was cut in half, while the tip of her finger was held on by a few millimetres of flesh. Required three months of therapy before she could return to the water and had to wear a hand brace for a further five months. "I don't have full movement in that finger. It doesn't really stop me doing anything." (heraldsun.com.au, 29 Jul 2014)


MISHAP
Seconds away from completing a graceful dive with her partner Maddison KEENEY (AUS) when she slipped on to her back before bouncing off the springboard and into the pool at the FINA World Diving Grand Prix 2017 on the Gold Coast; this was a test event for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games. Nasty bruise on back but had a good laugh afterwards.
