Who I am and how I got started
I am a triathlete taking on the sports world and pursuing my dreams in triathlon racing. I race for the club TriAS Hildeshiem in the 1st Division German Bundesliga and for New Zealand in ITU races throughout the globe. I began my days as a sea urchin, swimming and competing in surf lifesaving. In my second year of high school I took to the pedals and began cycling. When I finished school I progressed to triathlon and dove straight into studying towards a Bachelor of Engineering – whipping up honours at the University of Canterbury and graduating in 2013.
Three words that best describe me
Why I use Formthotics
I have naturally very poor knee alignment and in turn have struggled for years with pain in my knee during cycling and running training. I tried rigid plastic orthotics and while these helped the knee issues they had no flexibility – I could hardly run and my calves were really sore.
When I think of Formthotics...
I think of the perfect solution. I train and race pain free which allows me to put in the time required to reach success at a much higher level of competition.
A perfect days goes like this...
Holidaying somewhere with a beach and warm weather.
Three things on my bucket list
