Who is your sporting heroine? Layne Beachley
How many hours per week to you train/exercise? 25hours
What kind of diet or nutrition plan are you on? I try to eat a healthy balanced diet so I get all the right nutrients and energy requirements for training. I have a oversized sweet tooth so I often enjoy a treat but never feel guilty!
What do you love about your sport? The challenge, achieving goals, being a good role model and travelling the world
If you could change something about your sport, what would it be? Move events for female kayakers at the Olympics. Men can compete in 8 events while women only have 4 events.
What motivates you? The satisfaction of achieving something you thought you couldn’t do. Gaining results, ticking the boxes and achieving goals knowing you put the hard work in to get there.
Do you have a profession outside of your sport? I am a registered nurse and I am currently studying to become a paramedic
Three words that describe you: Happy, determined & food lover
If I wanted to play your sport, what advice would you give me? Be prepared to do lots of swimming first! Sprint kayaks are very unstable and take a long time to learn how to stay upright
