Double Olympian triathlete having raced for South Africa at the Beijing Olympic Games in 2008 and the London Olympic Games in 2012
My focus has now turned to coaching and I enjoy working with athletes that aspire to be professionals in triathlon at ITU level and also those who want to reach a high level in triathlon over all distances and formats of racing.
In 2006, I decided to pursue a professional career in triathlon in order to achieve my childhood dream of representing South Africa at an Olympic Games. This was my sole focus and driving force for 8 years and it was satisfying to be able to achieve my goal and compete in two Olympic Games in Beijing in 2008 and London in 2012. I spent these years training and racing abroad under the guidance of Australian triathlon coach, Dr Darren Smith and was fortunate to part of his elite squad of world class athletes. In the process, I gained an enormous amount of experience and understanding of what is expected of a professional triathlete and the demands and pressures they are exposed to. In 2010 I achieved my highest world ranking of 7th position. After competing at Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland in 2014 and winning a silver medal as part of the South African mixed triathlon relay team, I realised that I had achieved everything that I wanted to in the sport. I then decided that new ventures awaited me in coaching triathletes to help them realise their potential.
