Why did you begin your sport?

I saw an ad on TV for Little Athletics with Matt Shirvington and thought it looked like fun!

Do you have any pre-competition routines or rituals?

Must have a pre-race coffee and I have a certain playlist I listen to that pumps me up.

What is your most memorable sporting achievement?

Competing at the Rio Olympics in the semi-final for the 400m, and running in the final in the 4x400m!

Who is your hero / idol, and why? Have you ever met them?

Allyson Felix, because she's so incredibly hard working, humble and very speedy. I've met her once...I actually made her say "G'day Mate" for a video.

Who has been the most influential person or people in your career and why?

I don't think I can say there has been one person... My parents and my fiance Lachlan Renshaw (Beijing 800m Olympian) have definitely made my career possible, and my coach Peter Fortune has been so important in my development as an elite athlete.

Do you have any hobbies away from your sport?

I just enjoy anything by the water.. going to the beach or taking my dog for a walk. And coffee!

What is your sporting ambition?

I think every athletes' dream is to win a medal at a major international championships, and I am no different!
