From dolphin dives to beached whales
AB2086, ZRH – LPA.
Currently suspended 37’178 ft above terra firma if the drop down screen in front of me is to be believed. The one which alternates every twenty seconds between a little plane hovering over a non-descript satellite image of what could be Europe, and incredibly precise flight information you would rather not know if like me you're not a happy flyer.
Learning to think like a pro
It could have been Angry Bird, The Champ, The Captain… maybe even an agressive Honey Badger or something as glamorous as Spirit… But no, I got saddled with a green vegetable. I have been training with Brett Sutton’s squad for the last few months; traditionally most of his athletes earn themselves a nickname at some point or other and I have been getting rather a lot of questions since I was recently dubbed the Little Cabbage.
For making me believe in myself
Back in Autumn of 2011, I was a wannabe triathlete recovering from a femoral neck stress fracture. In 2015, I won a half ironman as a professional athlete and managed a 10th place at the Ironman 70.3 Worlds Champs. I may have pushed the pedals and scooped the prizes, but there was one person working hard behind the scenes throughout that journey: my coach, Marc Montandon.
