How many hours per week to you train/exercise? 6 days a week roughly 4-5 hours a day and then matches on top of that

What kind of diet or nutrition plan are you on? I am not on a specific diet plan. I eat healthy as I need the right fuel for my body to perform at my best.

What do you love about your sport? I love that friendships that are built when in a team. Being able to train and compete with your friends is something really special. This is what keeps me going.

If you could change something about your sport, what would it be? I would love for the regconition and the coverage of the sport to be greater and shown on TV. It is such a great game, both Men and Women and so exciting to watch live , I’d love to see it become a professional sport in Australia

What motivates you? The feeling after I have completed a training session or gym session, reminds me of how much I love being active. I remember this when I feel dull and just going out for a walk in the sun and fresh air really makes me feel 100 times better and gives me time to think and motivates me in what I am doing

Do you have a profession outside of your sport? I am just 6 weeks off finishing a degree in PD/H/PE and I will then become a PE Teacher

Three words that describe you: Energetic, Talkative and Impatient

Kate Hollywood Supports Sport for Women Day

“I think that Sport for Women Day is a fantastic initiative to recognize the skills, commitment, passion and dedication of females athletes and their involvement. In a world so male dominated in sport, it is great to support females and their role in sporting activities.”
