WHAT ARE YOU CUR­RENTLY WORK­ING ON IN TRAIN­ING?

Speed and strength are pretty im­por­tant for a jumper, so I tar­get core and glute strength in train­ing. We only have 30-40 me­tres to hit our top speed be­fore we take off for the jump!

WHAT’S YOUR SE­CRET TO BUILD­ING MEN­TAL STRENGTH?

Visu­al­i­sa­tion is key. It’s hard to repli­cate the at­mos­phere of a com­pe­ti­tion, so some­times you just have to be ready for what­ever the con­di­tions are on the day. Pos­i­tive self-talk also makes a dif­fer­ence.

WHAT EF­FECT DOES TRAIN­ING HAVE ON YOUR HAIR?

Train­ing and com­pet­ing out­doors all the time leaves my hair con­stantly ex­posed to UV rays and sweat. I need to pro­tect and re­pair my hair from the dam­age UV causes, so Pan­tene 3 Minute Mir­a­cle Con­di­tioner is my go-to for every wash.
