If I wasn’t an athlete I’d be a… marine biologist.

 

You would never catch me watching…. anything to do with Take That.

 

 On the other hand I never miss an episode of… Family Guy.

 

 My choice of radio station is…. Radio 1 or Xfm but mostly just my I-pod.

 

 I would love to have a shopping spree in… City Surf.

 

 My first car was… a blue Ford Focus

 

If my house was on fire I would definitely save my (assuming family are already safe!)… this is a hard one it would be a toss up between my television or my surfing gear.

 

The last film I watched at the cinema was... Black Sheep.

 

Comedy genius to me is…. Bill Hicks: If Jesus came back to life do you really think he would want to see another cross?

 

The silliest thing I have ever done in competition was… I have dropped a discus into the sector, a grand, legal measured throw of 35cm.

 

One of the first TV programmes I remember watching when young was… Thunder Cats.

 

What tunes are on your I-pod… a bit of every thing, mostly stuff to help me focus when I’m throwing.

 

What is the strangest picture you have on your mobile phone? Kathryn Periac (UKA Performance Manager) asleep at a competition.

 

What was the last book you read? Probably the TV guide - as you can tell I don’t read that much.
