Grace Carter was told she had the ideal frame for volleyball during GCSE PE lessons at Bramcote Hills Comprehensive School in Nottingham.
Carter studied sports science at Sheffield Hallam University and made her debut for Britain in 2008 while she now plays in France.
Her hobbies and interests include playing the piano, guitar and drums and one of her favourite sporting memories is Sally Gunnell’s 400m hurdles gold at Barcelona 1992.
