On this list are a lot of the people who have made a big impact on my journey as an athlete and, of course, far more than those on this list but I would be typing for hours so here are a few of the key supporters.
- Jim Connon & Bobby Kreitz - My first (and current) biathlon coaches, they've helped me develop from a xc-skier to a full-on biathlete.
- Dave Adolph & Francois Loignon - My strength & conditioning coaches through Engage Sport North and the Canadian Sports School of Northern BC. Under their guidance and support i've become a stronger athlete both physically and mentally. (To learn more about the Sports School, go here)
- My Parents - The best support anyone could ask for! They have been there the whole journey and were my first coaches. Also know as wax tech and cheerleader; at any race you can find my dad preparing some speedy skis and my mom out on course, ready to push you up that hill.
- CNSC Otway Biathlon Group - Moving from xc to biathlon was nerve-racking at first since I was going to be training with new athletes that I didn't know that well and would be starting way behind them. Despite this, they made me feel welcome and helped me to catch-up to their level.
