- You will be competing as an individual….will you do the team or the super team event also?
If so – who will you be teaming up with and why?
I plan on competing as an individual and with a super team. Ideally the team will consist of myself, Dina Swift, Grant Moseby and Alan Foulis, but I’m still awaiting confirmation from these legends.
I believe that when competing in a team you really need to respect your team mates and you need to be on a similar page regarding your goals. I have asked these athletes to join me because I love their dedication, hard work, constant support towards others, modesty and incredible talent. I believe we will compliment each other well and it’s a group I would definitely enjoy spending the weekend with.
- What are you looking forward to at this very first NECC? Is there anything that you are hoping to see or expect from my programming?
I really don’t know what to expect, I’m hoping for some good competition and even programming of events. I know I have my weaknesses and I’ll feel terrible if they are exposed, but that’s the nature of this sport, so as long as I get some of my grueling endurance events, the more balanced the better and the competition will be true and fair.
