About Athlete

I enjoy hard work, simple as that. Putting in hours & hours of work is in my DNA, and out-working my opponents and fellow peers is something that I believe gives me an edge. “The more I practice the better I feel”

My goals are to reach the highest echelons of my sport while arming myself with a world-class education, creating the best of both worlds through sport.
