I’ve always been competitive and into doing almost any athletic endeavour, from volleyball to basketball to triathlon. Sport is a huge part of life and something I believe everyone should have access to. After spending a few years of my life over in Tanzania I’ve come to view the ability to participate in sport as a massive privilege. Therefore even on the days when training is hard and the pool is super cold at 5 am I try to remember to be grateful for the opportunity given to me. Also, as much as I enjoy triathlon I don’t see it as an end goal, merely an opportunity to see how far I can go in elite sport. Thus I am continuing my university degree while training full time and have plans to enter medicine when I decide to leave the sport one day. As far as values go around sport and life I’ve always valued perseverance – both from my own past experiences with injury and my own views on sport and life in general.
