Vegemite: do you keep in the fridge or pantry?

The pantry, mum always has to I will follow through with tradition ;-)

Favourite other sport?

Tennis, not playing - but watching.

Do you have any tattoos? Tell us about them.

Yes, I have 3.

Dream on my ribs, for the obvious reasons.


A love heart with a 'K' inside for my Aunt that I was very close to that past away from cancer.

And below that, I've got a quote that says 'life goes on' because simply it does & it reminds me that when life sometimes doesn't go my way it will eventually & you learn from everything.

To play me in a movie of my life I’d want ...

it to end happy. A happy ending is always great.

Who was your role model growing up?

My mum, she is very important to me & has sacrificed a lot for us 3 kids in her lifetime.


Where do you see yourself in 10 years’ time?

10 years time, hmmm. Hopefully maybe just completed my second Olympic Games & looking to settle down with life.

Are you a cat person or a dog person?

Depends, at this very moment - neither. As I can't have any in my apartment, but probably a dog as my partner is allergic to cats.
