I took up triathlon in 2015, starting at the grassroots doing sprint and standard distances. Having raced at an amateur level at the World Age Group Champs (5th Overall) I decided to step up to Middle Distance the following season. My first Middle Distance was IM 70.3 Calgary which I took the overall win at. From here I won the 2018 National Champs. 2019 saw my breakthrough to the Professional ranks securing four middle-distance podiums and 16th at the World IM 70.3 Champs, with only 4 months of full time training behind me.
2019-2020 sees me step up to the full Ironman distance targetting IM WC Kona in 2020.
Update: 2020 sees me staying fit, healthy and mentally focused on the long game for this sport!
