About the project

World #1 rank in Duathlon is my goal. As a non-funded arm of Triathlon fundraising is key to being able to chase our goals in this sport. Our training in Duathlon is very similar as for a Triathlete, time consuming, to say the least.


I have been on the Elite Athlete Program at Murdoch university which has allowed some juggling of work loads to fit into competitions which are mainly international as there are very few races in Australia. Powerman in Asia is grown massively and so an Australian presence in those Elite fields is as much about national pride growing the sport as it is about competing. Passion only gets you so far. Funding and building long term partnerships with sponsors is crucial to success.
