- When did you first get into sport/fitness?
Back in the 2 leg days I was pretty sporty. Got cancer a year later after chemotherapy I was buzzing to be alive, 1 leg out of 2 left and my dad started taking me to these local taster sessions for basketball. Hated it at first, I was appalling at first but then my competitive side came through and I saw how good basketball could be especially at the top level my competitive spark reignited and I’ve been playing ever since.

- Why Basketball?
Basketball was the only sport I tried and I stuck with it!
