Priory reporter: Why did you decide to take up diving?
Peter Waterfield: ‘’Well at the age of nine I was into many different different sports such as; Football, Judo, Karate, and many more. I couldn’t really swim at the time; I only learnt to swim because my dad took me fishing – in case I fell into the water I had to learn to swim. So I went swimming one day and then at one end of the pool I saw people diving and I thought it looked cool so I wanted to learn to dive as well so that’s why I decided to dive.’’
