Interview

How did you first get involved in your sport?

I was 6 years old when I went for an appointment at Musgrave Hospital. There was a leaflet about the Knights Wheelchair Basketball Club with all of the training times on it. So the week after I went to my first training session. I'm 17 now and I've been playing wheelchair basketball ever since.

What does a typical week look like for you?

I train 7-9pm on Mondays and Tuesdays, 9:30-11:30am on Wednesdays, strength and conditioning from 7-8pm followed by training from 8:30-10pm on Thursdays, usually ending with a match on Saturday/Sunday.

What motivates you to continue in your sport?

motivated because I love playing matches, scoring baskets and helping the team win.

Who is your sporting hero and why?

I don't really have one big role model as such. There are many inspiring people that I look up to inside and outside of sport although I prefer not to worry about other people too much. I'd rather just focus on my own game and concentrate on how I can improve.

What do you do in your free time?

I like watching football, especially the Premier League, and I support Arsenal FC. I watch a lot of movies and tv series on Netflix and I also play a bit of wheelchair hurling for Ulster.
