Unfortunately she didn’t have any experience with changing gears so completed the whole race in the same gear.  Needless to say she found the bike leg extremely difficult and thought the sport might not be for her.

2011 saw her compete in her first full season at the elite level and 2012 was all about the London Olympics, and the second youngest competitor in the field being and came an incredible 8th place, running with the leaders until the final half of the run.

2014 was about the Commonwealth Games, placing 5th (first Australian) in the individual race and bronze in the Triathlon Team Relay event.
