Getting to know you:
1. How did you get into gymnastics?
I got into gymnastics from my parents. I started at a parent and toddler session, I was 2 years old. From there they took me more and more and I just loved it.
2. What has been your greatest sporting achievement
I’ve had multiple successes in gymnastics like becoming Commonwealth and European champion but the greatest achievement of them all is never giving up after all my injuries… I’ve had 6 surgery’s and I’m still going and for me that’s my greatest achievement.
3. What are your aspirations in Gymnastics for 2022/23 and beyond?
So, coming up we have the World Champs in Liverpool which as a team were going to give our all to get a world team medal and qualify for the Olympics 2 years early.
4. What are your other interests outside of gymnastics?
I’m a very sporty person so I love doing sports. Boxing, Golf, Football, Squash you name it.
5. What motivates you to train and compete at the elite level in sport?
What motivates me to train and do my best is all the sacrifices me parents and family have made to keep me in sport. They have given everything they have so I can be where I am so I do it for them and I do it for me.
6. Do you have an athlete role model who inspired you?
Growing up in gymnastics my role model was a gymnast called Daniel Keatings, he was world silver medalist and multiple European and commonwealth medals.
7. What advice do you have young athletes looking to get into gymnastics?
My advice for any sport not just gymnastics is that if you enjoy it then go for it. Gymnastics is a hard sport and there will be days you feel like giving up and there will be days where its becomes scary.
8. Describe your perfect weekend.
A perfect weekend is spending time with my family and my girlfriend going for some nice food watching a movie and relaxing.

Years ago our Nutritionist told us the benefits and how we should use it in the build-up to competitions etc.
