If I wasn’t a triathlete I’d be:
Fat. I have come to the realisation, through observation of my own family, that I have a genetic predisposition to weight gain. On a more serious note, hopefully involved with sport to some degree.

Finishing second at IM Coeur d’Alene in 2009 after two DNF’s in my first two attempts.
Most humiliating moment:
There is nothing more humiliating than a DNF.
Coach/es:
Liaise with Rob Pickard periodically.
