Pete helped in making an impact to young people’s lives and raising aspirations whilst working on the Sporting Champions programme, and is now looking to inspire your audience by sharing his secret of what it takes to be the best you can!
Peter started diving aged 9 and he was doing lots of different sports at the time as he wasn’t very academic at school including judo, karate, kickboxing, and football.
He started to swim as it’s a life skill we all need and while in a swimming lesson he was watching the divers at the other end of the pool and decided it looked more exciting so he asked his dad if he could have a go and when he did he loved it and realised he was actually quite talented at it.
Peter has now been to 4 Olympic games, including London 2012 where he was paired with Tom Daley in the syncro 10m event, narrowly missing out on a medal. Although his biggest achievement to date is winning a Silver medal at the Athens Olympics is 2004!
