Reason: “I have been lifting since I was 12 years old. I was a world champion in karate and my dad wanted me to do something to become more explosive. At 16, I represented South Africa at the Commonwealth Championships, and I was going to a lot of training camps, and we were realising I was good at weightlifting. My dad always said it’s better to be a master of one, instead of a jack of all trades. That is when I switched over to Olympic weightlifting full-time.? (, 12 Apr 2017)
Ambition: "I want to compete at the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.? (, 12 Apr 2017)
