Reason: As a small girl, wanted to emulate her mother, New Zealand 800m runner Shirley BARBER, and represent her country. (olympic.org.nz, 26 Mar 2018)
Influence: "When I was running with Barry MAGEE's (NZL) squad he told me something I have never forgotten. He said it takes about 10 years to peak in an endurance sport and you need to be patient." (nzherald.co.nz, 26 Mar 2018)
Ritual: Before training, has a banana. (trainandchew.wordpress.com, 26 Mar 2018)
