Your best moment in sport so far:

Competing for Scotland in the Glasgow International at the Emirates Arena against GB, Germany and France. I worked so hard to get there, it was amazing and a great experience.

Aims for the next 12 months:

To keep improving and bringing my PBs down.

Who in your sport has inspired you most and why?

In sprinting, it has to be Usain Bolt. He’s the best, but I find inspiration everywhere.

Favourite sporting moment of all time as a spectator:

Watching Scotland play at Murrayfield in the Six Nations.

Best thing about your sport:

You get the best of both worlds with athletics, you’re out on your own doing your own thing, but you’re also part of a club/team and have that support.

What do you do to “tune-in” immediately before a competition?

I put my headphones on, turn the music up, zoning everything else out.

If you had the chance to change one thing in your sport, what?

I’d make more opportunity and recognition for disability sports at younger ages.

Venue at which you most aspire to compete:

Any venue that hosts athletics, but to be on any track in 
the Commonwealth 
Games one day, I’d be 
very happy.

If not in this sport, would like to compete in:

Rugby.

Current most-played song or track on your MP3:

Take me to church, Hozier.

... but can’t stand:

Anything by Lady Gaga.

Other interests away from my sport:

Listening to music, watching a movie, Xbox and chilling with my mates.

Fantasy away day (all-Expenses Paid):

Just having a full day at the beach with the lads with nothing else to do. Doesn’t have to cost much to have the best day.
