Non has made a very successul transition from track running to triathlon. 2012 was a breaktrough year with senior gold in the ITU Triathlon Mixed Relay and U23 gold at the ITU World Championships. However, 2013 started with real impact with a win on the ITU World Triathlon Series in Madrid and she went on to win the ITU World Triathlon Series, becoming world champion. Along the way she achived podium finishes in San Diego, Hamburg and Stockholm.

She changed her focus from running (she was Welsh Schools 1,500m champion in ’02, ’03 and ’04) to triathlon after a series of injuries kept her off the track. She was picked out as a bright young running talent in 2004 when she was invited to join Kelly Holmes on the first ever 'On Camp with Kelly' at a camp in South Africa. She has been part of that set up every year since. In 2006 she finished 3rd in the 3000m (senior) at the AAA Indoor championships.

Turning to the pool for rehabilitation, Non was soon training fulltime with the University of Birmingham Triathlon team and progressing as a triathlete.

2011 saw Non take top-10 finishes at the ITU Triathlon World Cup in Ishigaki, the ITU Triathlon European Cup in Antalya and the ITU Sprint Triathlon Pan American Cup.
In 2012 she finished 11th in the open round of the ITU World Triathlon Series event in Sydney. Later in the season she finished 5th in Stockholm and helped the Great Britain team to gold in the mixed relay event.
Non was born in Bridgend, lived in Swansea, went to University in Birmingham and is now based in Leeds and is part of UK Sport Lottery Funded British Triathlon World Class Podium Squad.
