Interview

How did you first get involved in your sport?

I started weightlifting to accommodate my rugby which was my primary sport at the time. As the years progressed i began to compete and become more successful in weightlifting up to the age of 16, where i chose to focus solely on weightlifting and finish with rugby.

What does a typical week look like for you?

I have five days of uni a week as well as two days of work and nine sessions a week so my days are pretty stacked, i try to keep my sundays as free as possible as down time is important

What motivates you to continue in your sport?

My main motivation in the sport is the desire to win, especially the Commonwealth games. Past that, my family and friends are really supportive in my goals and that motivates me a great deal

Who is your sporting hero and why?

My sporting hero is an american weightlifter called Donny Shankle due to his ability to overcome setbacks as well as his philosophy on weightlifting.

What do you do in your free time?

I enjoy watching rugby and playing music
