>>HOW I GOT STARTED
In middle school I joined the Sharks swim
club, and competed in my first international
competition at 16 in Jamaica. As I grew older,
I started to become faster and was recruited by
Eddie Sinnott at Southern Methodist University
in Dallas, Texas, where I was taught discipline
>>HOW I TRAIN
Six to eight swimming sessions and four to five
weight/dryland sessions per week.
I have a high caloric intake in order to be able
to convert those macronutrients into energy.
Usually each week I go grocery shopping for
fruits, vegetables, protein and carbohydrates
to cook healthy, sustainable meals.
>>HOW I GOT INSPIRED
National team director Ben Smith has played a
massive role in my swimming career, and without him I would not be where I am today.
>>MY ULTIMATE SPORTING GOAL
I want to leave an imprint on the sport of
swimming and create a pathway that younger
athletes can use to place Bermuda on the map
at the world elite level.
