We then competed in racing for a year and starteddoing freestyle as well, which we found that we prefer. We then begancompeting which was something we really wanted to do as we're bothreally competitive. Since joining the England Team it's become ourfavourite sport and we're hoping to aim for the Winter Olympics in2014."
"We're both feeling really good about the British WorldChampionships: it will be our seventh year in a row and James will belooking to defend his title. We are very used to competing against eachother but it's a big positive as we train together and push each otherto get better. James tends to beat me so it's always good motivation forme to keep improving."
