About you Leading an active lifestyle is what makes me whole, I like doing a variety of activities and am always keen to try new things. Probably why I was so drawn to multi sport in the first place. The "dead tired" feeling after a hard session is the best feeling. If I can inspire people to believe in themselves in whatever they set out to do, while keeping true to themselves and the people around them, it will be mission accomplished 😉

What is your favourite movie I am no movie connoisseur, so romantic comedies do the trick. I am quite the Hugh Grant fan, so Love Actually and Nottinghill is some of the favorites.
Highlight of your sporting career There has been many amazing highlights along the way, but winning my first national title in triathlon, was a highlight as it solidified the course of the next decade of my life.
