Born in: South Africa
Main Skills / Strengths: Swimming Coach. Motivating athletes to strive to be the best they can be.
Something interesting you have done: I would have to say climbing Mt Kilimenjaro was one of the hardest things I have ever done but definitely one of the most rewarding. But for something interesting would have to say working on a game farm back in Africa after I finished School. An absolute amazing experience and one I will never forget.
On the sporting side competing against Brad Bevan as a junior triathlete was an experience I really enjoyed and learnt from.
Achievements or Goals achieved:
Achievement: competing in the Cairns 70.3 at the age of 40 for the first time in 2015 and breaking the 5hr mark.
About Me: I enjoy all aspects of sport, setting goals, training towards achieving them and then race day trying to achieve the goal I have set.
Apart from that I get great satisfaction out of helping and watching the people I coach achieve their goals.
The love of sport is very strong in my family we all support each other and understand what it takes to achieve our goals, the sacrifices, the emotions and especially the rewards.
Goals: to compete in the 2017 Sunshine Coast 70.3 as well as to complete a full Ironman event sometime in the near future.
