Other sports

Competed as a road cyclist. "The last couple of years I was still enjoying the road, but I wasn't as passionate about it as what I was four, five, six years ago. I was just training and racing without much hunger. It was a bit more of an obligation then a desire, so to speak." (sbs.com.au, 4 Dec 2017)


Ambition: "The Commonwealth Games is the first big target to tick off. Because I have spent so long away from the track, I need to completely focus on it." (geelongadvertiser.com.au, 16 Dec 2017)
Hero: "When I was a kid it would have been Magnus BACKSTEDT (SWE). I don't know why, but I loved watching him race." (telegraph.co.uk, 15 Jun 2011)
