Biography

I currently train in Pretoria, and during an average training week I swim for eight hours, bike for 10 hours, and run for seven hours. My personal best swim time (750m) is nine minutes, bike (20km) 28 minutes, and run (5km) 15 minutes. I . My favorite ITU race has been the Bled European cup, because it was my first gold medal in an ITU race
