Additional information

Jumped a best of 6.54m in 2011 but placings were poor. "I just couldn’t hit the board and that is when I decided to go to the United States. I thought, 'I need a fresh start and to find a coach that can help me fix this'." In 2012, as a student at Texas Christian University, breakthrough almost immediate, leaping 6.74m. (, 4 Apr 2016)

Despite early-season leap of 6.83m in windy conditions and 6.74m in 2012, remained just one centimetre short of qualifying standard for London 2012 Olympic Games. (, 4 Apr 2016)

At end of 2017, her personal bests were 6.92m outdoors and 6.97m indoors. "I know (7m) will come eventually... just need to get over the first jump and I know it will be something I’ll be able to replicate. Need to focus less on distance and more on technique and it will come." (Athlete, Dec 2017)

"I would love to travel the world and make documentaries, learning about new places, people and cultures." (Athlete, Dec 2017)
