What are your worst habits as an athlete?

Some might say I trained too hard. Im not convinced...

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

I came from a running background, and ran for AUS before I raced Triathlon. my dad thought I could be the best triathlete in the world after I did a local race and won. I trained and 18 months later won the world triathlon title. I went on to win more World Triathlon races than anyone, remained world number 1for longer than anyone and another world title. Dad was right.

Given our ambition as a brand is to create a fitter and healthier world. How are you going to make the world a fitter and healthier place?

Promote health and fitness, minimise my impact on the environment, provide a strong role model for my son and those generations younger who will become our next leaders and whose decisions will lead the next generation and their impact on the environment.

what is your favourite 2XU product? and why? how does this help you prepare, perform, recover?

I love 2XU recovery compression tights. Comfortable, warm on tired legs. After training hard it is like having a bit of luxury for your legs to look forward to. im also a big fan of the swim goggles and the light run gear.
