Questions and Answers

Q: What was your first piece of sporting equipment?
A: Blue and white Merida

Q: What do you love most about your sport?
A: The fact that I can do something I really enjoy and at the same time be surrounded by so many happy people. I've seen a lot of people do things they never thought they were able to do,“impressing themselves” and loving it. To many people get stuck in a normal boring life as where obstacle racing makes people live, have fun and do stuff outside of their comfort zone, , and that’s what I love most about the sport.

Q: What has your sport taught you?
A: Obstacle racing has taught me a lot in life but one of the most important things is that no matter what happens, one must always stay humble, never change as a person and always remember where your power comes from.

Q: Biggest goal for 2015?
A: To become the National Warrior Race Champion.

Q: Interesting fact about yourself?
A: I live for adrenaline. I was a National Motocross rider for the past 4 years before I started taking obstacle racing serious. It will always be one of my favourite hobbies.
