White water rafting is something that I recently started doing and immediately became captivated by! I already enjoyed being on the water having kayaked since a young age. I am actively involved in freestyle kayaking and squirt boating. All my free time is, in fact, spent on the water – nowhere else I would rather be!


I have loved water sports my whole life and started white water paddling 4 years ago. I have really enjoyed improving my skills in white water rafting, and I’m excited to compete in The Czech Republic and represent GB!
