What motivates you to train and compete harder?
For me I always remember to have no regrets. You work hard to be chosen for these opportunities, and I feel it's important to go out their and have no regrets. If as an athlete you train to your maximum and during competition you no you couldn't have done any more, then that's all that matters. Each morning I think this if I do all I can no one can ask for anymore.
What are your top three training tips?
1) Don't stick to the same routine when training this will get boring and your body will easily get used to it. Change things up be creative and make training exciting with new challenges.
2) Find a training partner for me this always creates competitiveness, which is great to enhance performance.
3) Share your story with others, helping and supporting others when training, others will help and support you.
