Injuries

Knee issues at the end of 2015 and returned to training in mid-2016. (Australian Weightlifting Federation, 9 Sep 2016)


Reason: "I thought it would be a fun sport to try, so I came down to Cougars (Weightlifting Club) and had a crack at it, and loved it." (Australian Weightlifting Federation, 22 Jul 2014)
Ambition: “My first Commonwealth Games (was in 2014), so I was happy to be there and excited to be so close to a medal. That’s given me more confidence now to go to a second Commonwealth Games (2018) and work extra hard. I’m hoping this time, with a home crowd, I’ll be able to go one better and get on the podium.? (Eastern Courier Messenger, 27 Sep 2017)
Memorable: Winning the 48kg division at the 2017 Oceania Championships in Gold Coast. "I had never won an international medal, so hearing the national anthem playing was pretty special." (Eastern Courier Messenger, 27 Sep 2017)
Hero: Weightlifters, Dika TOUA (PNG) and Deborah ACASON (nee LOVELY) (AUS). "I think Dika TOUA, because she's been at every Olympics since it started, and Deb LOVELY, this is her fourth Commonwealth Games (2014), so that's pretty impressive." (Australian Weightlifting Federation, 22 Jul 2014)
Influence: Coach, Rob GALSWORTHY. "Kept me coming back." (Athlete, 6 Oct 2017)
Ritual: "I like to have spaghetti bolognese after I weigh-in." (Australian Weightlifting Federation, 22 Jul 2014)
