Additional information

STARTING OUT
"I got into athletics through competing in school carnivals and making my way up through the ranks. I made it to my first NSW Championships in cross-country when I was nine - I came 33rd. I actually didn’t do Little Athletics, but joined St George Athletics Club when I was 13 as my coach was the president of the club." (nswathletics.com.au, 12 Aug 2011)

MANY INTERESTS
"I played a lot of different sports when I was younger: touch football, rugby league, swimming, boxing, basketball, soccer, tennis, Oz-tag, cricket." (nswathletics.com.au, 12 Aug 2011)
