Additional information
General
A BIG YEAR
He considered quitting the sport in 2017 after missing out on national team selection for a number of international tournaments. He decided to persevere through 2018, and went on to compete at the Commonwealth Games, European championships and world championships, winning a total of four medals. "I was always missing out on the teams. I remember watching competitions on the sidelines that I'd trained for. I'm talking 14 weeks of solid training and grafting, blood, sweat, tears. I was always just missing out. I thought, 'I can't keep doing this'. So I said, 'Right, this is my make-or-break year. If I don't make the teams now then I'm not going to make Tokyo [2020 Olympic Games] because you need to start putting in the work now'. I sorted myself out. I went very independent. I knew my body more than anyone else. I set out three targets [for 2018], to go to the Commonwealth Games [Gold Coast, QLD, Australia], the European championships [Glasgow, Scotland] and the world championships [Doha, Qatar]."
