Q1. What is your daily routine when you are training?

Due to the nature of my sport (5 Sports) my daily routine is quite varied. The consistent part is that each day has between 3-5 sessions and of course I eat and sleep A LOT. Usually it will consist of a block of training in the morning and another in the evening. Take Monday for example, I shoot and run in the morning from 9:00-11:30am then rest up and I swim and fence from 17:00-20:30pm


Q2. What are your three most prized possessions?

  1. Junior Worlds Bronze Medal, I keep it by my bed and use it as a constant reminder that there is another medal out there to be won in two years and that is very possible.
  2. A signed picture of Roger Banister breaking the 4 min Mile. I was given it by my granddad when I turned 21, who throughout my career has been one of my biggest supporters. I just love it.
  3. My phone, I feel more naked without that baby than I do in speedos


Q3. If you could invite 3 people to dinner – who would they be and why?

  1. Jessica Alba
  2. Rosie Huntington Whitley
  3. Emily Ratajkowski

I’m pretty sure you would be the envy of every man in the world, think of the photo opportunity…..!


Q4. What do you enjoy outside of sport?

  1. I love socialising with my friends
  2. Eating, I’m a bit of a foodie
  3. Adventures, I love doing something completely random on my day off, it’s usually far from the daily routine which helps keep my mind sound when the going gets tough.


Q5. What’s your favourite film?

Hmm that’s a hard one – Pentathlon, haha yes it’s a movie but no its probably in top 10 worst movies ever made where Dolph Lundgren (Russian Opponent from Rocky) plays a Russian Pentathlete who flees the country, it’s pretty comical. But my favourite movie of all time would have to be the Shawshank Redemption.

Q7. Any phobias?

Getting old scares me, I no longer look forward to birthdays and I am only just 23.


Q8. Do you have a sporting hero?
