60 SECOND INTERVIEW

WHEN DID YOU START TAEKWONDO AND WHY:
I started Taekwondo when I was 6 because my friend did it. We’d fall out quite a lot so I decided I was going to be better than her at it.

OTHER SPORTS PLAYED:
I did dancing, but it wasn’t boisterous enough so I stopped.

AMBITION:
To go to the Olympics and achieve a gold. Also to win at the World Championships.

ROLE MODEL/FAVOURITE OTHER SPORTSMAN OR WOMAN:
I’ve always looked up to Bianca Walkden, she’s a really nice person as well as a great athlete.

IF SOMEONE GAVE YOU £1 MILLION, WHAT WOULD YOU DO WITH IT:
I’d probably want to go and spend it all, but I would buy a few houses and a range rover.

SOMETHING YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT REBECCA MCGOWAN:
I played the trombone for five years and could do the Eastenders theme.
