Aged 16, Chris made the England National Talent Squad (ENTS), a programme designed to support young athletes in transitioning to senior international level. This was when he started to make a serious commitment to canoe slalom. Now 23, Chris describes his life as an athlete training up to six days a week, plus gives an insight into his diet and life away from the water, including making time for his studies.
Although just missing out on a place in the Team GB squad for the Tokyo Olympics, Chris shares how he learns from both his successes and failures, and is committed to using these experiences to propel himself to achieve his future goals. These future goals also include finishing his degree in accounting and finance at the University of East London.
