2XU Local Legend
When and why did you first encounter 2XU?
Working in a gym for the past 4 years and competing my whole teenage life in Surf Life Saving I had come across 2XU many times and saw that it was a very influential brand in the fitness industry and sporting world.
What was your first purchase?
A sprint distance 2XU Trisuit.
What was your feedback to the garment?
Highly positive! It was light, comfortable to swim in and unlike most other trisuits, it left me rash-free!
What is your proudest sporting accomplishment?
Winning the under 17 NSW State Ironman. It was my first major win and to this day, I haven’t had a feeling like winning that race.
When did you first set yourself a goal to achieve this, and why?
I’d always been a super competitive kid and always wanted to win, whether it was a simple game of handball against schoolmates or an Australian Ironman title. So to answer the question; I never really set a goal to achieve this, I just always trained hard and was hungry to win.
What role did 2XU play in this journey?
TRAIN HARD, find a good coach and training partners and be lucky enough to have parents that love you so much that they will go to no end to make sure you are looked after and always have their support.
What is yur favourite 2XU piece of apparel?
2XU Elite Compression Tights
Why do you choose 2XU?
I chose 2XU because of the comfort through the fit of the gear and also it looks good too.
What is next for you on the sporting horizon?
Next on the sporting horizon is swimming 12km worth of laps of Bondi Beach (12 weeks to 12km Can-Too Fundraiser). Moving forward into next year, maybe heading overseas for some distance events. Also as a trainer and Can-Too coach my goal is to help my clients achieve their very best and keep pushing them towards their own sporting and personal goals.
