How do you stay motivated and push yourself in training?

My motivation comes from friends and family. The sport is super tough with very little reward sometimes there are days when you just want to not train but I’m fortunate I have lots of support around me to keep pushing through the tough times.

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?

Pre race routines vary for me and depending on how I’m feeling it changes. If I’m too relaxed I need a bit more time pumping myself up to get into the zone and go to a spot where I’m by myself no distractions. However, when I’m a bit anxious I need to relax and listen to some music or talk to some friends to take my mind off the race.

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

Making the Victorian Interstate team where I can race for my home state and help be a role model for people wanting to pursue the sport from Victoria.

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?

My biggest milestone I’m the most proudest of is my 6th in Open Surf Race and Open Ironman final at Australian Titles Perth 2023. These accomplishments have made my training and sacrifices I’ve made moving to the Gold Coast to pursue the sport all the worth while.

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

Unfortunately I’m not super talented off the field but I do enjoy having a kick of the footy in off season and spending time with friends and family.

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

Balancing training with my personal interests can be extremely hard as me have to make so many sacrifices to get the best out of myself. What I try and do is make a healthy balance ensuring I manage to get the best of both worlds. However during main competition season I try to make that my main priority and in the off season I make those personal interest my priority whilst no competitions are on.

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

My top 3 Engine products would have to be the clear/tinted weapon goggles cannot go wrong with these, Iron Jammers good for all disciplines and engine puffer jacket keeping you warm during the colder months!
