I startedswimming because: my mum was a swimming teacher, it’s the Australian thing to do, I spend my holidays at the beach and generally love being by the water.

I’m looking forward to Uni Games because: it will be great to have some warm weather, and a week of competition meeting heaps of fun loving athletes!

In preparation for Uni Games, I’ll be: preparing some wicked costumes and banking up on sleep.

At Uni Games I’m hoping to: meet heaps of people from around Australia.

My three favourite things about swimming are:stinking like chlorine… the scenery, ie blue tiles and a black line (more like the bodies of fellow swimmers) and funnily enough the early mornings because it’s the best time of the day!
