I first represented New Zealand in 2001 in Surf Life Saving. My first triathlon was in February 2005 in New Zealand where I qualified to represent NZ in the Triathlon World Championships for U23 Elite.

I was crowned U23 World Champion in September 2005.

In March 2006 I was the bronze medalist at the Commonwealth Games in Melbourne, Australia. And the following week I had my first World Cup podium in Mooloolaba. I finished my first season ranked 9th in the World and was awarded the ITU International Triathlon Rookie of the Year.

In 2007, I won my first World Cup in Kitzbuhel, Austria.

In 2008, I placed 8th in the Olympic Games Triathlon in Beijing, China.

In 2009, I had a consistent season to finish 3rd overall in the World Championship Series with 3 podium finishes including a win in the Madrid round.

I placed 2nd overall in the 2011 World Championship Series. My season highlight was winning 3 races in a row - the Beijing World Championship Series Grand Final, the Yokohama World Championship Series and the Auckland World Cup.
