RETIREMENT
In May 2021 she announced her retirement from competitive sport. "For me, swimming has always been about having fun and doing something that I love and feel passionate about. However, in recent years, the training environment that I have been in has not allowed me to have that joy in coming to the pool every day. Because of this, I have decided to prioritise my health and well-being." (Instagram profile, 28 May 2021)
