PERSPECTIVE
Missed out on the final team for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, going as a reserve only. "It was very difficult. But speaking to my coach, Jeff BROOKES, he's supported me through my whole career and we just thought we owe it to ourselves to go all out at the (Gold Coast 2018) Commonwealth Games and see what happens." (bbc.com, 4 Mar 2017)
