PHILOSOPHY
Success is one per cent glamour, 99 per cent grunt. (Facebook page, 21 May 2016)


GOOD FEELING
"I've never done a perfect throw, it’d be nice if I had. But a good throw, as soon as it leaves the hand, feels effortless. And the ones when you're a bit off, they’re the ones that hurt the body. But you usually know when you’ve let it go and can see the little dot flying through the sky that it’s going somewhere." (huffingtonpost.com.au, 16 Apr 2017)


GAMES PROGRESSION
Gold Coast 2018 will be fourth Commonwealth Games since finishing sixth at Melbourne 2006; fifth at Delhi 2010, fourth at Glasgow 2014. (tilastopaja.eu, Jan 2018)
