Chris claims his first sporting success was getting the British and Commonwealth record in the 100m breaststroke.

He would most like to meet Steven Irwin, as he's so passionate about what he does although I think he does get a bit too close to those crocodiles!

His most prized possession is a small trophy he was awarded at school. Chris recounts there was meant to be lots of students swimming in the school's gala but on the day nearly everyone pulled out. He and three others were awarded the trophies for swimming in more races to make up for the students who dropped out.

He first gained Great Britain selection in 2003 (senior), and he describes himself as persistent, motivated and enthusiastic.

He says his finest sporting moment was competing at the 2004 Olympics.
