What inspires you?

The Olympic Dream inspires me. To be able to do what you love and represent your country on the  biggest sport stage in the world is truly inspiring and motivating!

What is your current goal for the season?

Qualify for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics!

What is the most significant challenge you face in achieving your goal?

For me, it’s not about strength, endurance or technique. My greatest challenge is my mentality. I find that I struggle with my mind and confidence more than anything else.

"Don’t dwell in the past for too long. Stay persistent and consistent with your training and the results will come!" - Hannah Martin
