Sport Specific Information
When and where did you begin this sport?
She began diving at age 14 at the Chandler Diving Club in Brisbane, QLD, Australia.
Why this sport?
She followed her sister into the sport after previously participating in artistic gymnastics. "My little sister, Sophie, was in diving and I was really looking for a change in what I was doing with my gymnastics. I saw Sophie doing it one day and was just like, 'I want to give it a try'. Transitioning over from gymnastics into diving was quite challenging at the start. [Namely] learning to dive like a diver rather than a gymnast."
