Dresden International youth Meet
|Years diving||USA Diving||AAU|
I'm currently looking at universities to go to in the fall of 2015 and I'm hoping to train in the states on a diving scholarship, because diving has meant so much to me and don't want to stop when I go to university.
I'm well into the application process, I have done my SAT I'm now at the stage when I'm looking whereabouts I would like to go
I'm currently studying in England, I'm doing A-levels in Physics, P.E. and Biology and if I go to America I'm hoping to Major in kinesiology and minor in engineering which could hopefully lead to a job in sports engineering as it's a subject I'm very enthusiastic about.
I have been diving for 10 years at a volunteer run club in Reading called Albatross diving club. We only have 1m, 3m and 5m so I have been unable to train platform properly, this makes springboard my passion especially 3m. I love diving and the thought of quitting has never crossed my mind. I can't think of a better way to spend my time than diving!
My greatest achievement in diving was representing GBR at the Dresden youth meet in 2012 and I compete nationally every year at the highest level here in the UK. I have also recently been selected to be part of TASS, a government funded scheme which gives me the opportunity to train with Great Britain's podium potentials.
My current dive lists are as follows:
105b, 205c,305c,405c,5235d, 5134d
I am currently in the process of learning 107c and 5152b
107b, 205b, 305b, 405b, 5152b, 5235d
Hoping to learn 5253b, 5335d
I currently train 12 hours a week. minimum of 2 hour session 5 times a week.
Over the next year I will be filming a lot more of dives and I'll be uploading them to:
there are videos of my current dive list here already.

I often lead the warm up in the pool when we are low on coaches, I enjoy taking this role of responsibility because it gives me a chance to help the younger divers out from a divers perspective rather than a coaches one which I believe is beneficial every now and then. At school I am more than happy to take charge in group orientated tasks top help with organisation and task efficiency both of which are important to me.
We lack weight equipment at our pool so whenever I'm not at school or in the pool I like to go to the gym to improve my strength which really helps when I get back in the pool.
Because I dive at a volunteer club, I like to give back to the club by helping with coaching whenever they need a extra coach or lifeguard on poolside.
