What is your sport?
How many hours per week do you spend training/playing?
10 or more hours a week
What study are you undertaking at ANU? What year of study are you in?
I am in my second year of a PPE/Law degree at ANU.
How do you juggle the commitments of playing sport and studying?
I find playing ultimate is a nice break from studying. Sometimes the perfect balance is tough to find but I’m definitely better off for the sport I play.
Does sport assist you in your academic pursuits?
I definitely think it does. If I couldn’t play some sort of sport or do some sort of physical activity, I think I would definitely find it harder to concentrate on studying.
Greatest sporting achievement.
Winning a bronze medal at my first unigames this year with the ANU Disc team was great. I also enjoyed winning a bronze medal with the ACT side at the 2016 U-22 Championships.
What is your long term sporting goal?
I want to become the best ultimate player I can.
Who has had the greatest influence on your sporting career thus far?
I’ve been lucky enough to have a lot of supportive and encouraging figures over my sporting career. In terms of ultimate, the coach of the ACT u22 side Anson Chun has given me a lot of opportunities and insight into the game. A lot of the veteran players at Fyshwick United have also taught me a lot about ultimate.
Who is your sporting idol & why?
Kawhi Leonard of the San Antonio Spurs. He is a team player who puts in a lot of hard work and remains humble despite winning numerous accolades and being a dominant force on the court.
Any superstitions or unusual game day preparations?
I like to wear a specific set of socks at tournaments.
