Steph has the ability to see your potential before you can see it yourself. When i first met him, he asked me whether I would like to represent Australia at a World Championships. I thought he had rocks in his head!

However, in the last three consecutive years this is exactly what Steph helped me achieve. His guidance and support is second to none. The training, training camps, racing and trips away have provided me with some of the most fulfilling experiences of my life.

Steph is a caring coach who takes on feedback to help modify my training to suit my working hours, injuries and other commitments. I believe this is what makes him such a successful coach and the reason why his squad won so many world championship medals.

In Chicago 2015, I achieved what I never dreamed possible- winning a world championship in sprint distance triathlon. I attribute my results & success to the hard working, yet fun culture he has developed in the squad.

I cannot thank Steph enough for the opportunities he, and triathlon have provided me.
