What is your best memory of a triathlon in Wales?

My first triathlon in Mumbles at the end of 2017. Not really knowing what to expect or really being fully prepared as had never been outdoor swimming before or cycled more than 10 miles but finishing 4th and couldn’t wait to compete again.

I don’t have a favourite, I enjoy racing in new locations.

Being part of the Wales Team with so many other talented athletes is an honour. I’m very excited to race for my country at the championships and hopefully make friends and family proud.

Usain Bolt. He is so talented and his personality is one of if not the best in sporting history.
