What is your advice for balancing sport and academia?

“Balancing training with studies and socialising can be difficult, but a busy schedule forces me to be more organised and make the most of the time that I have. Using training as a break from studying helps me to stay focussed when I'm supposed to be working and stops me from feeling guilty about training as I know that I'll be more productive when I return to studying afterwards.”


What has the support from UCAPP meant to you?

“UCAPP has allowed me to work on many aspects of being an athlete that I had not had support in before. Complimenting my usual training this has translated into noticeably improved performances on the piste.”
