Reason: Spent first 16 years of his life in Malaysia and a lot of time in the water. Joined a team while in school. "In 10 months, my 50m freestyle time went from 25.0 to 23.4 and that was the turning point - I knew I had to go all in or nothing with swimming. I told my mum this is the career path I wanted to follow." (swimswam.com, 22 Mar 2016)
Influence: Former coach Jon RUDD (plymouthherald.co.uk, 29 Nov 2016)
