A friend challenged me to participate in the Provincial Championships when I was 14. From thereon I was hooked and the rest is history. My father was an athlete, and both of my parents are cyclists. My father and brother are participating in Ultra Triathlons. My parents and brother are always supporting and encouraging me.
I currently train at the High Performance Centre at the University of Pretoria under the watchfull eye of my coach and friend, Lindsey Parry.
