Reason: Represented her state of Tasmania in both netball and triathlon as a junior, before trying out in a talent identification program with the Tasmanian Institute of Sport. A love for the cycling leg of triathlon led her to solely focus on the bike. (themercury.com.au, 4 Aug 2016)

Influence: Her late father, Patrick. "He was my dad. He played a massive role in my life. He's someone who always taught me to never give up and I always take that with me." (sbs.com.au, 24 Feb 2016)
Additional information

HEART SCARE
Withdrew 20km into the Women's Tour in Britain in June 2017, due to sharp chest pains. Her father, Patrick, died suddenly from a heart attack in May 2015 at the age of 44, and she knew she could take no risks. After tests, it was revealed she had supraventricular tachycardia, a recurrent rapid heartbeat, which is non-life-threatening. However, she required surgery to continue competing at an elite level. Underwent surgery in August 2017, and spent two weeks recovering before getting back onto the bike. (themercury.com.au, 21 Jul 2017; thecourier.com.au, 12 Aug 2017)
