Who are you people?

Why do you think Little Athletics is great?2021-11-17T15:09:50+11:00

Little Athletics is such a fun for kids to develop skills required for all sports. The thrill you get from running, jumping and throwing as fast and far as you can is something I still remember 25 years on from doing Little Aths.

What is your best sporting memory?2021-11-17T15:10:11+11:00

Running down the finishing straight in the marathon at the Tokyo Olympics.

Who is your sports hero and why?2021-11-17T15:10:11+11:00

I don’t have one in particular, but I’m fascinated by people who’ve been able to continue competing at the highest level in difficult sports into their late 30s and 40s — like Kelly Slater, Tom Brady, Sinead Diver and LeBron James.

What occupies your thoughts during your many hours of training?2021-11-17T15:10:11+11:00

A lot of different things. Sometimes I zone out, other times if I’m struggling for motivation I try to envisage being in a race as opposed to a boring one-hour solo run.
