Best piece of advice you have ever been given:
When I was running down the blue carpet at Youth Olympics – I got told to relax and enjoy the moment.
Favourite Endura product and why:
Endura Rehydration Performance Fuel (Raspberry) - it hydrates me throughout my race and is one of the best tasting drinks to have when racing.
How did you get into your chosen sport?
When I was younger I did swimming and track cycling and a some little athletics. My older sister was starting Triathlons and I eventually got into them at around 6 years old (starting on my Mountain Bike).
How important is diet and sports nutrition supplements to your performance?
It’s one of the most important aspects for Triathlon (or any sport). It’s vital you have the right diet to stay lean and fit to avoid injury. Nutritional supplements are also essential as they help your body recover in the right way to help avoid setbacks.
What do you normally eat and drink on a typical training day?
My post-training breakfast varies a fair bit, but I normally have some sort of cereal and either two pieces of toast and an egg. For lunch I have a salad with some sort of meat or a sandwich/wrap, and for dinner it’s either fish/meat/chicken. When it comes to drinking I drink water as much as I can, and also my Endura recovery drinks (Optimizer) to get me through to the next session.
Where will we find you when you are not training or competing?
Either at home, at the beach or shopping!
What is your best training tip?
You have to train the hardest to be the fastest.
What are your goals for the next year?
My goals for next year will be to get a start at the Mooloolaba Triathlon and make the U19 Junior Elite Worlds team to travel to Chicago.
Who inspires you and why?
Emma Snowsill inspires me - seeing what she did as a younger athlete motivates me hugely, and now she’s retired and still involved with the sport and helping people out really shows how much she loves the sport of Triathlon.
How long would you normally spend training each week?
Training varies each week depending on what we are focusing on, but we do around 4 swim sessions, 3-4 bike sessions and 4-5 run sessions a week.
What is your favourite 'before race' meal?
The night before my favourite would definitely be either lasagne or pasta! The morning of the race, I love having Weet-Bix!
Best nutritional advice?
Stay on top of nutrition, it’s very important!
How do you stay motivated with training?
I think about how far I’ve come and how much I can achieve!
The thing I love the most about being an athlete is...
I get to stay fit and healthy and be out and about most of the time.
What is a common mistake made in your sport?
I’d have to say transition is where a lot of things can go wrong, it can win or lose you a race.
Toughest experience in your career / What have you learnt from it?
When I had to pull out from the Australian Youth Olympic Festival - I’ve learnt that you need to get on top of things immediately.
What is going through your head the moment before you start a race?
Someone here is going to win.
In five years time I will be...
Hopefully a World Champ!
What one or two things do you currently do in your training that are keys to your success?
Push myself when needed, and just do what I’m supposed to do!
