My Sport History:
The first sport I played was soccer when I was 7 years old. But I mountain biking with my family and racing in the O Cup series at a young age. Later when I was 13 I ran my first cross country race in grade school. After that I found my love for running and joined C3. At this time I tried a few kids of steel but was mainly focused on running. When I turned 17 I started to do triathlon seriously and from there my Triathlon career started to grow.

Parallel to my professional racing career I am a spokesperson for dyslexia awareness. I have dyslexia and I believe the focus and discipline of sport has helped me to overcome obstacles and succeed in life. I am working with the Dyslexia Society to help spread awareness.
