Injuries

Knee injury two months before the Australian Amateur Boxing Championships, held as a trial for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games. "I tore my ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) two months ago, so I wasn’t even sure if I was going to be able to compete. I knew I wouldn’t be able to have surgery before, so I had to do it without an ACL." (Central Coast Express-Advocate, Gosford, 30 Nov 2017; sbs.com.au, 8 Nov 2017)


Reason: “I was curious. I worked close to a boxing gym and was playing soccer and got sick of getting rained out all the time. So I gave it a go and instantly wanted to see how good I could get.? (Athlete, Oct 2017)
Ambition: “I want to be the best in the world. Representing at the Commonwealth Games and the World Championships in 2018.? (Athlete, Oct 2017)
