Proudest sporting moment

Completing ‘the hardest Ironman in the world’, Ironman Lanzarote, in 2011 with a 41 min PB over Ironman Austria, 7 loo stops and a “I think it’s all over” moment in the swim, hanging off a course marker buoy for a while – the stubborn Yorkshire streak won!

Motto

If you think you can do it – you probably can.
