“I feel I have a race in me with a lead pack swim, a record setting bike and a sub 2.50 run. If possible I hope to be pushed to the line and win in a sprint finish, because only then….. I know I have given everything and made the perfect performance”
"Early in my career I have often focused my energy into a specific result goal – like becoming world champion. And even though such a commitment is a tremendous motivator and mental exercise, I have often felt frustrated by focusing on a certain result, since triathlon is so much more than that. A result at a race will always be a measure of your competition rather than yourself. You can win with a poor performance over a bad field or come 5th with the performance of your life in strong field."
