As a youngster, winning seven gold medals at my first ever gymnastics competition.
Jess Ennis, for retaining titles. Retaining titles is 100 times harder than chasing them!
Don’t worry about what others are doing.
Breakfast: Scrambled or poached eggs on toast with avocado. Lunch: Salmon and veg. Dinner: Steak. Or a roast.
Energy or recovery snacks during competition.
Out of competition, I might treat myself to a biscuit.
I try to eat healthily all the time but 3 weeks away from a competition, I might try to eat even healthier!
Something creative, I’m massively into design. Perhaps designing clothes.
The ability to recover and always feel fresh.
I think it’s important not to have any regrets.
Being at home with the family.
No, but I love animals.
I didn’t even start looking at the Olympics until was 17.
I like structures and routines, rather than ‘lucky’ socks.
I love chocolate.
Having Willow, my daughter. She’s the best thing in the world.
Awkward handshakes with famous people, there’s nothing worse and they always happen!
Happily spending time with my family.
