Swimming, dancing and subsequently horse riding were my childhood pastimes. I discovered Modern Pentathlon in 1999 and then moved into triathlon in 2004, having found that training for three sports was easier than five! I competed regularly at both Sprint and Standard Distance triathlons, then in 2007 moved up to Long Distance races, and competed at the European and World Long Distance Championships, in Belgium and France respectively for Great Britain at the Age Group level. In 2008, I was given the opportunity to represent Guyana, my Dad's country of birth. In July 2009 I competed in my first elite event in Puerto Rico, the Central American and Caribbean Triathlon Championships. I also competed at the Caribbean Road Race Champs in Barbados in October 2009, gaining encouraging results. I switched to cycling after Barbados and was lucky enough to compete at both the Central American and Caribbean, and the Commonwealth Games in 2010. The Pan Am Cycling Championships were held in Colombia in May 2011 and the altitude proved a severe test of my progression as a cyclist; unfortunately I did not qualify for the Pan Am Games in October 2011 but gained invaluable experience at the highest level. My sporting journey continued at the Cycling World Championships in Denmark in September 2011 where I came up against all the very best riders in the world; it was a privilage to wear the Guyanese national colours on the world stage. Besides training and racing, I have been gaining coaching qualifications to allow me to give back to sport.
