Injuries

Back injury during a land training session, February 2017. "I thought I had just pulled my back, but the pain never left and got worse. An MRI scan revealed I had irritated joints on my spine, which was frustrating." Still having rehab sessions, February 2018. (skysports.com, 19 Nov 2017; skysports.com, 21 Feb 2018)


Reason: "My parents got me into it as a life skill. They started me learning. I've always liked the water." (shropshirestar.com, 19 Dec 2016)
Ambition: "I'm hoping to make a living out of swimming and then perhaps try something else. It would be amazing to go to the Olympics." (shopshirestar.com, 19 Dec 2016)
