BIO

Been chasing dreams in elite sport since my childhood. Starting as a competitive swimmer in my local swim club and transferred into triathlon in 2014 as part of the Youth National Team.


In 2019 I transferred into long distance racing, winning my debut Ironman in Austria and qualifing for my first Ironman World Championship in Hawaii. Since then I haven't looked back. I am aiming to be the best in the world. It takes hard work and dedication but with the right team around me I am confident in reaching my goals.
