Beyond the Boat

After training Jo teaches swimming to youngsters; she would love to become a sports coach or school teacher one day. Jo’s sporting role model is boxer Anthony Joshua, and her dream dinner party guests are Muhammad Ali, Elvis Presley and Russell Brand – the northern classic, chicken parmo, would be on the menu.

Jo’s ergo soundtrack includes a mix of things, including tropical house, she says: “it takes me to the beach in the middle of an 18k”. Along with music, which she couldn’t live without, Jo would take a hammock to a desert island, as well as a chicken – “because what’s life without eggs?”
