10 Things You Didn’t Know About the Olympics!

olympics Jun 23, 2018

Now, before I start here I would like to say that this is from my experience of going to the Rio Olympic Games in 2016. Each Olympics varies from one to another so this may be a bit different to other athletes you speak to. Nevertheless these are some things that surprised when I got to Rio!

1. Security

Security at the Olympics is extremely extremely high.  All 10 500 of the worlds best athletes are in one place with volunteers, coaches, and dignitaries walking around so it is...

So, What Do You Eat?

diet Jun 11, 2018

Now, never would I have realized until the past couple years how one of the most sensitive subjects to talk about isn’t religion, politics, weight or exercise but rather diet! After spending the past few years toying with the idea of adjusting my own diet, this past year I decided to go fully vegetarian. To be completely honest, it wasn’t hard at all for me. I mostly ate that way anyways but sometimes struggled to find viable options when travelling as an elite athlete. On top of...

Rise and Grind?

motivation May 15, 2018

Sleep is for the weak. Just keep Hustling. You can sleep when you’re dead. Rise & Grind.

These are all things that I used to repeat to myself day in and day out for the past few years. I had to. I had to survive and push for my dream to come true. I couldn’t stumble and let the mountain of work defeat me. Being an elite athlete dedicating life to our sport we all just had to let our feet hit the pavement, close our eyes and keep pushing forward – no matter...

F*** Off Instagram

social media Apr 26, 2018

Ahhh social media. The bizarre world of perfect posing with divine lighting and angles coupled with deep and meaningful captions. Or if you’re cool like that – just three random emojis because you can’t be bothered writing and you just need to get that cute picture out there the for the likes. I get it. Don’t worry. It’s such a frustratingly addictive world that our generation has fallen into receiving continuous perfected updates about others lives’. I...

How I Really Feel About My Olympic Teammates

Uncategorized Apr 16, 2018

Two years ago this month our Olympic Team was chosen. Two years since the course of our existence changed forever. Two years since our names and lives were bound together to put our own little mark in the Australia Olympic history books. And two years since the reality of our goals lay divided between the hands of nine individuals.

Looking back on that time I don’t think I could’ve ever imagined how much we really became one being divided into nine parts. We were each...

Checking In

Uncategorized Apr 08, 2018

Now that I have done a few of these now and you are all learning new things about me (that honestly terrifies me a little bit) I just wanted to check in.

My purpose for these blog posts (Or Blobs as my Mum says) are not to whine and complain about the struggles that I go through. By no means at all! Don’t confuse my honesty with whinging. For the most part, I love my life! I love living in Perth and having the freedom to be and do what I want, I love that I am finishing Uni and am not...

End of an Era

Uncategorized Apr 04, 2018

Now this is something that most people never talk about in the galaxy of the Internet keeping the personal space of a relationship private but in my plight to bring more honesty to the online world I have decided to speak about it – my break up.

It breaks my heart to say that Lexi and I are no longer together. The specific details and reasoning behind it I believe should be held in a private realm to be respectful to both of us and our relationship that no longer exists. However I know...

Quarter Century

Uncategorized Mar 08, 2018

Now let's be real here for a mo – even before turning 24 I had this looming fear of turning 25. I’m not even joking you – at 23 I was crippled by the fact that the quarter-century mark was coming so quickly. It was this deadline or benchmark where my purpose was going to be measured and I would either pass or fail depending on the level of my achievements thus far. And that’s a lot of pressure!!

Now before you say it like everyone does – but you went to the...

Body Image – Work in Progress

Uncategorized Feb 26, 2018

So, this is a hard one for me to write about and to be honest it completely terrifies me sharing my truth with the world on this subject, so I really hope that this resonates or helps just one person.

So here goes nothing – is it just me or do you feel like we are in one massive world of contradiction around body image? We are told to by Dove to love ourselves, own our curves and admire our imperfections but then we are bombarded with shows like the Biggest Loser while Instragram models...

Truth Bomb

Uncategorized Feb 07, 2018

Okay. So. Let’s talk real here for a moment.

Not real in the Instagram sense having a beautiful worded and perfected post caption featuring the right amount of emojis and Hashtags when needed. Nah. I mean real real, stripping back all of those damn filters. Because you know what ? ! I’m tired of it. I am exhausted from the constant presentation that life is perfect or at least we try to only present the good times. You know what’s the worst part? I know that I am a massive...
