I am a Redlands (Brisbane) based athlete that started triathlon in 2012.
I started as a cross country runner and went to the local Sharks Triathlon Club for some running advice as they had free afternoon sessions. They encouraged me to enter my first triathlon lending me a bike (this was the first time I had ridden a bike with gears). Just less than a month later I completed my first triathlon at Raby Bay and placed 6th in February 2012. To see if this was just lucky or not,I entered my second race – Luke Harrop and placed 2nd. This was the start of my love of triathlons.
In 2016 I was honoured to be awarded the Pierre de Coubertin Award from the Australian Olympic Committee - recognising my achievements and demonstration of values which are consistent with the Olympic movement.
2017 I was crowned 16-19 Age Group World Triathlon Sprint Champion (Rotterdam).
In 2018 I very proudly carried the GC2018 Queens' Baton in my local area of Cleveland. In September 2018 on the Gold Coast I defended my World Title - again being crowned 16-19 Age Group World Triathlon Sprint Champion under the watchful eye of my coach Graham Fidler. My next aim is to represent at the World Titles next year in the Junior Elite division.
