What is your best strength in triathlon?
How did you get into triathlon?
I had always wanted to try triathlon from a young age. When I was younger I really didn't think swimming on its own was for me but I really got into it while recovering from a shoulder injury. I have always loved running and cycling so gave triathlon a go and have just progressed from there.
