“I think my mum and dad wanted me out of the house!”
I'm totally different when it comes to sport. It's just something that seems to be within me. . . . You have to be totally up for it and motivated otherwise you just wouldn't win.
"I've always known what I wanted. I've always wanted to be on top of that podium."
I'm proud of the way I've dealt with setbacks. It's hard when you feel down and you think, 'Why is the world doing this to me?' But you have to pick yourself up again. That's what makes you a better athlete.
