And you’re gen­uinely pleased when the other does well?

Ab­so­lutely. For me I couldn’t think of a bet­ter out­come than for both of us to be on the podium in Rio this year. To share the podium with Non at the two big­gest races that we at­tended last year was the ul­ti­mate aim of the whole year. And it was fan­tas­tic. It meant we could cel­e­brate it to­gether. It would have been a bit harder if one of us had achieved Olympic qual­i­fi­ca­tion and one of us hadn’t. It would have meant our prepa­ra­tion for this year would have been com­pletely dif­fer­ent. It was fan­tas­tic we both did that. Equally, if one of us has a bad race and the other doesn’t… I had a bit of a be­low par race in Capetown [ITU World Se­ries in April this year] but I was de­lighted that the per­son on top of the podium was my house­mate. It’s the same for Non as well. At Ed­mon­ton we had an ex­act role re­ver­sal – she was sixth and I was first.
