Non is was the ITU World Champion in 2013 and has met the selection criteria for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. Selection to be confirmed by the British Olympic Association in June 2016.

Non made a 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. 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.

2014 was a year to forget with the entire season missed through injuries, but she came back strongly in 2015 to finish second at the Rio Oympic Test Event and the ITU World Triathlon Grand Final in Chicago - meeting the British Triathlon Olympic selection criteria in the process.

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 had been 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. In 2006 she finished 3rd in the 3000m (senior) at the AAA Indoor championships. She took up triathlon seriously with the University of Birmingham Triathlon team.

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.
