    • Albert Park VIC, Australia

    • Level: Development

    I come from a swimming and cycling background, having started club swimming at the age of 11. I went on to compete at home town, university and county level in both swimming and water polo in England. I have ridden bikes my whole life: BMX, mountain bikes, road and time trial. I turned my focus to triathlon in 2008 and raced for 8 years, notably with five appearances in Age Group World Championships at Olympic Distance and 70.3. From a swimming background, I know first-hand what it takes to turn an athlete into a runner and pride myself on the small additions to a programme that can bring comfort and efficiency to a run gait.
