Interview

How did you first get involved in your sport?

I started a preschool gymnastics class when I was 3 years old because I had lots of energy and loved climbing up the mantelpiece at home and hanging off the door handles and I really enjoyed it.

What does a typical week look like for you?

I train 27 hours a week, over 6 days, which involves leaving school at lunchtime on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays to train. Monday 2-6pm, Tuesday 2-7pm, Wednesday 5-9pm, Thursday 5-9pm, Friday 2-7pm and Saturday 10-3pm. When I'm not training I have quite a bit of homework to catch up on as I am now in Year 10 at school, and I try and relax on a Sunday afternoon.

What motivates you to continue in your sport?

The exhilaration of achieving a new skill and the drive to reach my goals.

Who is your sporting hero and why?

My sporting hero is Max Whitlock because he always achieves clean routines in competitions even under the highest pressure, but also because he works hard in training and has a good character.

What do you do in your free time?

After school, training and homework I don't have alot of free time. However when I get the opportunity I like to ride my bike, play drums and play with friends on my xbox.
