Q & A

Greatest sporting achievement: Winning the Touch World Cup 2011

Greatest achievement off the field: Caltex Award for All Round Excellence at School

How many hours per week to you train/exercise? Every day- 1-2+ hours a day

What kind of diet or nutrition plan are you on? Try to eat healthy but chocolate is just too tempting. Carbs are a definite before competition.

What do you love about your sport? The great friends I’ve made and the places I’ve been lucky enough to visit, plus the further opportunities it has lead me into.

If you could change something about your sport, what would it be? That it became a professional sport, being more widely recognised and that athletes receive acknowledgement for the amount of hard work and training they do to be able to compete at the highest level.

What motivates you? To want to be the best and to win, no one likes losing.

Do you have a profession outside of your sport? Studying to become a Physiotherapist at Uni, currently in my second year and work two jobs (bar and active afterschool sport)

Three words that describe you: Energetic, Outgoing, Competitive

If I wanted to play your sport, what advice would you give me? Don’t get touched!
