    Favourite Colour and Why?
Blue, the colour of the sky that all nations of the Commonwealth sit under. And, yes, we do see blue sky here in Manchester folks!

I love all sports, however, my personal fave is the Triathlon
as it requires skill in three disciplines: running, swimming and cycling. I struggle with Weightlifting, as you can see!

I feel very passionately about encouraging young people, and adults, to get involved in sport- it's part of my role as ambassador. Sport is a great way of meeting new people, it's good for you, it's a big confidence boost, but most of all, it's FUN!

Chocolate of course! But being a champion for the athletes, means I'm in training with them, so I have to watch what I eat. However, I do sometimes sneak off for a curry to Rusholme's 'Curry Mile', which has some great Indian restaurants. Even top athletes have to treat themselves sometimes!

Favourite Spot in Manchester:
I like to be near the canals because they link most of the UK. If I jumped on a canal boat I could go anywhere and tell even more people about how exciting the Games are going to be. The canals where built for the industrial revolution which began right here in Manchester. Manchester has a lot of 'firsts' under its belt you know!

Chariots of Fire and Harry Potter. Although I did like the Lord of the Rings too.

Favourite TV Show:
I love most of the soaps, but my favourite is Coronation Street because I like seeing my home town on TV.

Biggest Celebrity you have met:
Her Majesty the Queen! I've also met Manchester United Manager Sir Alex Ferguson, amongst others! It's great being a Mascot - I have the best autograph collection.
 
       
  image of kit Hobbies:
I love surfing the web and especially e-mailing the friends I've made throughout the Commonwealth. I'm also a bit of a bedroom DJ because the music scene in Manchester rocks! I collect mementos from all over the Commonwealth which means I can barely get into my bedroom at the moment! After a hard day's 'Mascoting' I love to soak in a warm bath with lots of bubbles, I think I was meant to be a fish!
 
       
  image of kit What are your hopes for the Commonwealth Games?
The regeneration of Manchester and the Northwest in preparation for the Games has already made an impact. But I think the long-term benefits of the Games will show in the next generation of athletes: today's kids could be tomorrow's sporting heroes!

These Games are going to install such a pride in the people of the Northwest and the UK, as only a multi-sport event of this nature can do. There's nothing more inspiring than hosting an event on home soil and there's no better way to showcase your country to the world. So let's all get involved to make this the best Games EVER! Woo Hoo!
