Sport Specific Information
When and where did you begin this sport?
She began high diving in 2009.
Why this sport?
She competed in swimming and gymnastics and one day during swimming practice she realised she could combine the two sports and took up high diving. She was also encouraged by her husband Jason. "He's been high diving for around 20 years. When I first met him, I thought he was insane. I'd never even heard of high diving until I started dating him. He told me he dived off a 90-foot high [27m]. I thought it was to impress me, and it worked. It really did."
