Other information
AERIAL SPORTS
She trained in gymnastics before switching to competitive diving. "There's a lot of aspects of diving that I really love, I've always really loved heights and that's a massive part of diving for me, being a platform specialist. Also coming from my gymnastics background I've always really enjoyed the aerial aspect of sports, so being able to combine both the height aspect and also the aerials, that's something I really enjoy about diving."
