2022: 4th at World Triathlon Long Distance Championships
2020: Australian Long Course Triathlon Champion
20x middle distance/70.3 podiums including 5x wins
Geelong 70.3. It was my first 70.3 and my first pro race in 2018. I’ve raced it (and podiumed) every year since! I love racing in Australia and consider this race a hometown race for me so it is really special to be able to race in front of family and friends.
How did you start in triathlon?
While I dabbled in triathlons in my teenage years, it was in fact some injuries from running track and XC that led me back to triathlon at age 23. I really enjoyed the variation of swim, bike and run training and decided to make the switch to triathlons upon graduation from college.
