| Injuries || Simon broke a bone in his wrist in 2004, two months before the Olympic Trials. He recovered to swim his best times at the Trials and consequently gained Olympic selection. |
| Other || Simon's first sporting success was his first win when he was ten years old - he took out the 50m Freestyle at his club championships.|
His most embarrassing sporting moment was getting disqualified in a 100m Backstroke race two weeks after qualifying for the Commonwealth Games in that event.
He was first selected for Great Britain in 2002 and lists himself as his toughest opponent.
He lists Ponds Forge in Sheffield as his favourite venue as he not only qualified for the 2004 Olympics under an injury cloud, but he went under 50 seconds in the 100m Freestyle for the first time in his career there.
He is currently studying business at the University of Arizona.
