More about me

I am currently studying for a Bachelor of Sport and Recreation at AUT in Auckland. The main event I am most passionate about is 800m but would like to compete more in 400m. I am the youngest of 6 siblings and was born and raised in the Rural parts of Masterton. 

My biography

How did you get into Athletics?

Parents guided me towards athletics as my brothers and sisters and I used to run at the local Wednesday night club meets. From there I picked up the passion for competing and improving in this sport.


Approach to training and nutrition:
To trust the process, be patient. Stay clean, with a well-balanced diet. Use electrolytes during hard sessions, to keep energy levels up minimise lactic acid. Use Plant Pro, protein 33, 100% whey after training, especially within 20 mins after a session.

Biggest achievement so far and why?
