1. How do you stay motivated and push yourself in training?

Remember what I do this for and how far I've come. 

2. Many athletes have pre-game rituals that help them get into the zone. What are some of your personal pre-game rituals or routines that you believe help you get in the zone before hitting the beach or pool?

Trying not to overthink my race, being as present in the moment as possible. Lots or arm jiggles and some deep breathes right before the whistle blows. 

3. Reflecting on your career so far, what would you consider as the most memorable or defining moment?

Breaking the Victorian record in the 50 freestyle was one of the best feelings I've experienced in my life.

4. Are there any specific achievements or milestones that you are particularly proud of and that you feel have significantly impacted your journey as an athlete?

 Having a lot success as a younger swimmer 10 - 13 years old I am proud of but it made me realise come 14 - 15 that the hardest workers caught up to the most talented. 

5. Beyond your athletic pursuits, do you have any hobbies or passions that might surprise people?

 I know all the flags, countries and capitals of the world and where they are located. 

6. How do you balance your intense training and competition schedule with personal interests outside of your sport?

 Keeping a close circle of friends that are involved in the sport I do helps as our interests are the same and schedules are similar. 

7. What are your top 3 ENGINE products (either for racing or training)?

 1. Bullet goggles

2. Black gym tank

3. Wingskin Bullet
