Interview

How did you first get involved in your sport?

I started Triathlon at the age of 8 when I decided it was finally time to put my swimming, cycling and running together as I enjoyed all three. It was a massive hit from the beginning and I loved it despite not being the fastest in the races at the time.

What does a typical week look like for you?

A typical week consists of a wide range of activities and intensities. Across all 3 sports of triathlon each week I try to get an easy session, tempo and hard session done within each one along with gym training in order to stay injury free and keep a strong core.

What motivates you to continue in your sport?

I love meeting new people at events and making new friends along the way. I also enjoy pushing myself to the limit in order to see how far I can go!

Who is your sporting hero and why?

Bradley Wiggins not only due to his utter resilience when it comes to his cycling but also his witty sense of humour.

What do you do in your free time?

In my free time when I'm not training, I will get down to business with school work and I also play grade 8 saxophone, in my school Big Band and in preparation for my diploma.
