Additional information

DUAL CITIZENSHIP
Born and raised in United States, has British citizenship from mother. Relocated to United Kingdom in 2017 with mother and sister. "Since I'm representing this country, I felt being over here would be better for me, getting to know people within British athletics. I think it would also give me a better chance of being selected for other opportunities." (runblogrun.com, 14 Nov 2017)


REMOTE COACHING
Continues to train with US-based coach Steve MANZ (USA), using video exchanges and testing. "I love his lifting program and ideas about the shot put. He makes it very simple for me because I'm the kind of athlete that can tend to overthink things... I think it's going to work out." (runblogrun.com, 14 Nov 2017)


TECHNIQUE CHANGE
Changed shot put techniques in first year of college, from glide to rotary. Took majority of year to boost performance. "I went from 11m to 14.89m and qualified for the first round of nationals as a freshman, which was huge at the time. It paid dividends for me in that first year, but it was a long eight months of 'gosh, is it going to get any better?' It definitely did." (runblogrun.com, 14 Nov 2017)
