How did you first get involved in your sport?
I first got involved in sport through swimimng and gymnastics, and I only found out about synchro when I saw a display at the pool I swam at (Cheltenham). I thought it looked fun and it could help develop my gymnastics so I started at the age of 10. Since then synchro's taken priority, although I still do gymnastics and swimming to help my development in synchro.
