Most Memorable tournament win: It would be hard to choose between winning my first ever pro event which was the 2011 Moomba Masters or my recent win at the World Championships in Chile. Both events I will never forget and will cherish forever.
Sporting Idol: Joel Selwood. He plays AFL football in Australia and was the youngest captain to ever be appointed for the club. His leadership and commitment to the team is amazing and I value the way he goes about the game. In terms of waterskiing my coach Ray Stokes was my idol. He taught me so much in so littl time and I just wish I had more time to spend with him. An on water sporting Idol in waterskiing would have to be Freddy Krueger. How could you not respect and look up to a man who has been number one in the world for so long.
Top 5 Career Wins: 2013 World Jump Champion - 2013 and 2011 Under 21 World Jump Champion - UNDER 21 WORLD RECORD HOLDER - 2013 US Masters Champion - 2013 Malibu Open Champion
Interest outside of skiing: I know it might sound nerdy but I love studying. I am currently undertaking a Bachelor of Exercise and Sport Science. Once graduating from this course at the end of 2013 I aim to begin a post graduate study in my Masters of Physiotherapy. Aside from this I enjoy watching AFL football and playing netball.
Coach: I was coached by Ray Stokes a lot throughout my child hood. Since his passing I have been coached via video analysis by Curtis and Emma sheers. Now that they have there own lake I plan on training there alot more. It's great that they dont try and change my technique. They know how Ray wants me to jump and thats the path they are taking 🙂
Goals for 2013: - To win Moomba Masters since it is in my home town - Defend my title at the 2014 US Masters.
