“I lived in London for a number of years, so it’s like my second home. I really, really like the city so it would be nice to have a little bit of ‘homeground’ advantage,” said the swimmer who had “Diva” tattoed on her lower back to remind her to work hard. She explained: “When I was a bit younger I was a bit of a diva, because I didn’t train so hard and didn’t put in the effort. I made the tattoo to remind me that my previous ways weren’t so efficient and successful, and also as a tribute to women.”
