British hopeful Katherine Driscoll: 'Trampolining is like Formula 1'

Great Britain's trampoline hopeful Katherine Driscoll speaks of her love for Formula 1.

Great Britain's Katherine Driscoll will be aiming for trampoline gold at the European Games, but took time out to admit her love for Formula 1.

Driscoll, who will compete with Laura Gallagher in the synchronised event on Friday, believes that there are similarities between trampolining and racing.

"I am really close to my dad. We watched [F1] qualifying, we watched the race together. I just love it. Love everything about it. I do not even know what it is about it," Driscoll told reporters.

The 29-year-old, who narrowly missed out on reaching the finals at London 2012, claimed that both sports required "focus and drive".
