I am an Age Group triathlete based in Torquay, Victoria – training in Geelong and along the stunning Surf Coast. Having grown up around the water, I love my open water swims in the beach, hanging out at the beach with my friends and going on all sorts of outdoor adventures. 

Zoggs have been helping me in the pool and ocean for the last four years which I have LOVED every second. Zoggs helped get me to achieving my goal of qualifying and racing for Australia in the ITU Age Group WorldChampionships on the Gold Coast in 2018, after being in the sport for just over 18 months!

My biggest race achievements:

- 1st Barwon Heads Triathlon 2021
- 8th Geelong 70.3 2021
- 3rd 2XU Triathlon Series Race 1 2020
- 12th Australian Standard Distance Championships 2020
- 1st QLD Triathlon Series Race 7 2019
- 2nd Overall 2XU Triathlon Series Championship 20-24AG 2018
- 25th ITU Age Group World Championships 2018


Triathlon has given me so many opportunities and helped me create so many new friendships. I have used my experiences to try and encourage more females to get involved in the sport at any level, from attending their first swimming squad session to completing their first triathlon! Outside of triathlon I love playing netball and competing on my two horses in the sport of Eventing (the Triathlon of the horse world). I made my 70.3 debut at Geelong in early 2021 which I loved, and keen to explore what I can achieve in this distance in the future. Once international travel resumes, I aim to qualify to race at the Age Group World Championships and better my result from 2018.

 

I am super excited for a big season of training, racing and being a part of the Zoggs team for another year! I wear my bold prints of Zoggs loud and proud, and super excited to see what we can achieve together in the future!
