What was it like winning Aussies?
It was literally a dream come true, the year before I won, I got second, and I’ve always had a voice in my head saying I wanted to be better the next season, I wanted to be the best. So, I came out that next season with my head down and bum up and was very determined. When I crossed the line at Kurrawa, I just felt relief, I had done it, and I had achieved my goal. What a feeling it was. I still get goosebumps when I think back to it.
Was this the achievement you are most proud of?
I’ve got two achievements I am proud of one being the NSW State in 2021, that year was my last year doing Iron Person, and I wanted to give it a red-hot crack. I came away from that state as the NSW u19s state Ironwomen champion and ski champion.
In the 2022 season was when I won the ski at the Australian titles at Kurrawa. Looking back at the race, my race plan couldn’t have gone more down the drain than it did, with an early fall off my ski I was able to paddle the girls down by the second break and came home strong. This race will forever stay with me.
