"At the age of six, I started cross-country running, which led to athletics and swimming. I did my first triathlon at the age of 11, winning bronze at my second ever triathlon, our National Champs. I continued to do many other sports: cycling, biathle, biathlon, pentathlon, aquathlon, duathlon, hockey and modern dancing. After receiving national colours and winning South African titles in seven sports, I eventually had to make a choice when I was 17 and I chose triathlon. I competed in my first ITU race in 2009, the same year I started my full-time studies towards an LLB degree."
