How long have you been a nip­per? For about four years now, but this is my first year that of be­ing able to com­pete. Why did you join? My older sis­ter and brother do it. And I am pretty fast so I wanted to have a go. What is the best thing about be­ing a nip­per? That I can run and swim well. I have learnt a lot of new skills, I can wade and dol­phin dive. What is the hard­est thing? Prob­a­bly swim­ming. What is your best event? Beach flags and any­thing run­ning. I won the Coles Ju­nior Chal­lenge for the un­der eight boys 2.5km in the Great Bar­rier Reef Marathon last weekend. Do you have a favourite team mate? Mitchell Knight. He is a great role model and he won nip­per of the year. He is re­ally nice to us and fun. Who is your coach? Damian. He has taught me heaps and is re­ally sup­port­ive. Fu­ture goals in life­sav­ing? Maybe to be­come a pro­fes­sional Iron­man. As the life­sav­ing sea­son is now over here, will you keep prac­tis­ing your skills? Yes. I will prob­bly keep prac­tis­ing my div­ing tech­niques and keep run­ning. I am re­ally look­ing for­ward to next year be­cause we can start board skills.
