YOUNG SPORTS STARS
I started sailing 3 years ago because my twin brother Tom took it up.
Tom and I compete with each other all the time, which sometimes
makes our parents angry. I’m glad Tom’s not on my sailing team,
because we’d fight all the time. Luckily, in the championships I sail
a boat with another girl, and it’s great that we understand each other.
I chose diving because for me it feels like flying. My coach is Sam.
We’ve been cooperating for 7 years already. He knows me well.
I can easily get annoyed when things aren’t going well. Then Sam
helps me deal with my emotions. It’s because of him that I want to
keep pushing myself to do my best. This year I got my first gold
medal for Britain.
I just enjoy the miles of cycling. I believe that to be successful you
need to work hard. That’s what my older brother keeps telling me.
I practise two hours a day on weekdays and six hours daily at
weekends. But on top of this I have to look after my bike. When
something breaks, I deal with it myself.
