Who is to thank/blame for introducing you to your sport? Tell us your history to how it all began and how you got to where you are now.

I started triathlon when I was 22 years old. I was a swimmer before until the age of 19. I didnโ€™t know a sport called Triathlon. My swim coach suggested me to try this sport, when he knew that I had started running and I had already finished 3 marathons. So In 2009 I began my journey to triathlon.

What gets you out of bed in the morning and drives your passion to keep pushing yourself and chasing your finish lines?

I know I can still give a lot to this sport, I think I havenโ€™t reached my limits yet, so I keep working to this goal.

If you could invite any 3 people (dead or alive) to a dinner party, who would they be and why? What would you cook?

Woody Allen because he is my favorite film director and Heinz Beck because he could cook for us a starry dinner.

What is your favourite 2XU product and why? How does this help you prepare, perform, recover and repeat?

I can not do without my 2XU Propel Pro wetsuit. Itโ€™s a second skin, comfortable and super performing!
