Additional information

BAD MEMORIES BANISHED
Gold in 1m springboard event at 2017 World Championships in Budapest, Hungary. Helped put to rest memories of failed dive at 2015 World Championships in Kazan, Russia, footage of which became popular online. "I wanted to redeem myself. I didn’t need to think about what happened in the past, because I knew all the training, all the hard work, would pay off." (dailytelegraph.com.au, 16 Jul 2017; fina.org, 14 Nov 2017)

GREEN-DYED MONSTER
Criticised Rio 2016 Olympic Games organisers for not replacing murky green water in diving pool that proved a smelly eyesore. "I don't think I can blame the pool for my bad diving. I'm glad to be out now. Don't want to go diving in the swamp again." (abc.net.au, 15 Aug 2016)

IMPORTANT JOURNEY
Moved from Perth to Brisbane when she finished high school in 2013 to further diving career. (adelaidenow.com.au, 31 Jul 2014)
