Having taken up trampolining at just seven years old, Kat Driscoll quickly picked up the sport and developed a strong passion which now sees her vying for an Olympic medal.
The 25-year-old British champion began lessons during school holidays at her local leisure club before being spotted for the national team in 1998.
Having worked full-time for a bank up until February 2010, Driscoll now receives funding from UK Sport. This allows her to train six days a week, with three hours each day as well as six hours on a Saturday.
Before this move to become a full-time athlete, she took gold in the 2009 Aalsmeer Flower Cup as well as finishing in fifth spot in the world championships in the same year.
She currently leads the individual world rankings in women's trampoline after winning the 2011 World Cup Series. She claimed three silver medals - one in the individual event and two in the synchronised competition.
The 2012 hopeful secured an Olympic place for the national team at last November's world championships and will lead the Great Britain team for the European championships, which take place in April.
