How did you get involved in Athletics?
I started little athletics and saw that I was good at throwing so I decided to begin training.
When you first heard that you made the team, what was your initial reaction?
I didn’t believe that I made it I thought that my coach was lying to me.
Are you doing anything differently in preparation for this competition?
Yes more drills and getting ready so that I can compete in different ways.
What are you most looking forward to about the trip to Eugene (USA)?
Competing against other countries and see what its like over there.
Who has been your biggest inspiration in this sport?
Dani Samuels because she shows me that females can be top athletes.
What advice would you give to someone who is looking to become a professional Athlete?
Make sure that you’re interested in what you’re doing or you will ended up hating it.
