“I’m a triathlete that just happens to have autism. And I’m going to be awesome.
Most people don’t understand autism. If I can show people that someone with autism can be a successful triathlete, then it will motivate people.
Autism is an advantage. I am very focused, and I’m not easily distracted.
I want to show that people with autism can participate in sport. In fact, autism is a strength and athletes from any background can be great triathletes. All you need to do is get out there and get active. Don’t let your disability be a reason for not doing sport.
I enjoy doing triathlons because it gives me confidence and improves my self-esteem.”
