Hi everyone,

I am an 18 year old diver from Sheffield and I am on my way to compete for Great Britain in my first Senior Diving Grand Prix in Bolzano, Italy at the 2016 FINA Diving Grand Prix.

I have been diving since the age of 11 and have always loved the challenge being an athlete brings. My progress over the last 7 years has come from immense dedication and commitment, continually pushing myself beyond my comfort zones to learn new dives.

Sport is not just about effort, there is also a high emotional element. Be it in competitions or just training, I have enjoyed many moments of pride, happiness and success but also experienced my fair share of disappointment, hurt and tears. However, it has undoubtedly shaped who I am now (both mentally and physically!) and I’ve loved the journey so far.

Since being selected for my first British junior international in 2014, my diving has given me the opportunity,  to travel the world whilst representing my country.

I have been lucky enough to attend events in Italy, Sweden, Croatia, and Germany, as well as a training camp in China last October.

My proudest achievement to date was representing Team GB at the 1st European Games in Baku, Azerbaijan last summer.

I’ve had a great year so far – gaining medals at numerous junior national and international diving events, along with medals at national senior events.

I currently hold the title of National Junior Diving Champion in 3m synchro with my partner Millie Haffety (who, by the way, would also be grateful for your support - https://www.pledgesports.org/projects/bolzano-diving-grand-prix-2016-2/).

The last 2 years have involved balancing 20 hours of training a week around studying for my A levels. Now these are out of the way, I’m looking forward to a summer just concentrating on my diving.

Here’s where you can help: I am looking for donations or sponsorship to help me reach Bolzano in July and compete in the 2016 FINA Diving Grand Prix. This is a key milestone in my ultimate goal of competing in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. Any contribution, however small, would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for reading my page, and if you’ve donated, thanks even more!

Millie
