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.
