The club does a lot of fundraising, what is the purpose of your group and where does the money go?

Funds raised, go to the kids that make it into the School Sport WA team and travel interstate to compete against the rest of Australia, at the School Sport National Championships.

My sisters call me Vermin… Apparently I’m a pest!

How long have you been involved in Triathlons and how did you first get introduced/involved into Tri’s?

Most people call me Baldie; from the surname of course….My girlfriends have touted me “THE BALDE BITCH ….. Something to do with being a bit of a hard task master if they do any type of exercise with me….

Rambuka. I coached Australian Rules Football for a long time in Broome and back in those days you acted more like a dictator than coach or mentor. One of my captains in the mid nineties flagged it and of course it stuck for a while.

This will be my fourth season coming up, initially I believe I was exposed to Tri’s when mum went to see my uncle and cousin WAAAAY back in the day (Max Greive and daughter, Min), but I really can’t remember too much about it – I think I was 6 or 7orsomething.

Tell us a little bit about where you are at now Kenji

I’m a 19 year old triathlete who has recently become professional. I left home as soon as I left school to follow my ambition to make to the Olympics. Supported by my family and friends I trained along with the likes of Brad Kahlefeldt, Emma Moffat, Drew Box, Emma Jackson and Tyler Butterfield. Every day was an effort, every day I would come home sore and exhausted. But I have faith that this effort was for the greater good of achieving excellence. To give an idea of the jump in training load, I was doing about 12 hrs per week and am now doing 30 hrs a week.
