Siobhan-Marie O'Connor has firmly established herself as one of the undisputed stars of world swimming leading into the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, having topped the podium at major championships in both 2014 and 2015.
She landed an incredible six medals from six events on her Commonwealth debut at Glasgow 2014 last year, including her first major international title in the 200m Individual Medley.
This year, the 19-year old travelled to her third World Championship and came away with two medals, winning 200m IM bronze before topping the podium with a world record as part of the 4x100m Mixed Medley Relay quartet.
AquaZone caught up with Siobhan at her recent training camp in Manchester to find out what makes her tick...
Describe a typical day
I wake up at around 5.50, have a small breakfast and then arrive at training at 6.45. We have a group stretch from 7 until 7.15 and then swim for two hours. After swimming in the morning I usually have gym from 9.30-11. I then go home and have a big second breakfast.
I rest during the day and have lunch before travelling back up to the University of Bath (where I train) for sometimes either physio or massage, followed by another two hour swim session.
When did you learn to swim and what is your first memory?
I learned to swim when I was seven at a family friend's learn to swim school which took place on a Saturday morning. My first memory is when we did a few sessions of lifesaving. I remember having to swim in my pyjamas and them being so heavy that I couldn't stay on top of the water!
