He almost quit the sport after falling out with his coaches at the University of Florida, and some people were not happy when he decided to head home in order to focus on making the GB squad for the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

I got through to the final, came back and showed them what I'm made of and I'm so proud of myself now." (surreysportspark.co.uk, 22 Jun 2012, msn.com, 22 Jun 2012)
