WHAT BODY WEIGHT DO YOU COMPETE IN?
WHAT YEAR DID YOU START WEIGHTLIFTING?
IF YOU WEREN'T A WEIGHTLIFTER, WHAT SPORT DO YOU THINK YOUR WOULD COMPETE IN?
I was competing in CrossFit before weightlifting so I would probably still be doing that.
DO YOU HAVE ANY SUPERSTITIONS OR PRE-COMPETITION RITUALS?
I'm pretty methodical about packing my bags and check I have everything about 100 times 🤣 I also journal a lot leading into comps and like to listen to music and tune out before weigh in.
WHO IS YOUR WEIGHTLIFTING HERO?
There are plenty of amazing weightlifters with inspiring stories. Dika Toua comes to mind, 5 Olympic games is pretty impressive. Especially as her first Olympic appearance was in Sydney 2000 which was the first year women were allowed to compete at an Olympic Games.
DO YOU HAVE A HERO WHO ISN'T A WEIGHTLIFTER?
My family, my coach, my team mates, my friends... they are always heroic with their love, support and guidance.
WHAT DO YOU DO TO RELAX?
I love spending time outdoors... usually with my doggo 😊
WHAT'S YOUR FAVOURITE MOVIE?
Probably something Disney 😆 but I'm definitely more likely to watch a TV series.
WHAT'S YOUR FAVOURITE FOOD?
Anything chocolate 🤣
DO YOU HAVE A FUNNY WEIGHTLIFTING STORY ABOUT YOUR WEIGHTLIFTING EXPERIENCE
When you're in Aus gear in an airport, people are often interested in what sport you 'play'... and they are usually shocked when I say I'm a weightlifter. Rugby, Soccer and Cricket at the usual guesses. I even had the Customs officer laugh at me in Uzbekistan because he didn't believe I was there for a weightlifting competition 🤣
