Charlotte, how old were you when youstarted surf lifesaving and why?

5 years old, as my family has always been involved with surf life saving, and my parents wanted me to learn important life saving skills.

Who was your hero growing up in and out of surf lifesaving?

When I was younger it was definitely Liz Pluimers, but now it would have to be Brielle Cooper, she always has a smile on her face and she is always so supportive.

What is the best piece of advice that you have ever been given?

Always go to your full potential, and don’t hold back.

Your advice for aspiring Kellogg’s Nutri-Grain athletes?

I’d tell them the same thing!

What do you think about during a race?

I concentrate on my skills and making no mistakes.

Charlotte, what has been a high and low in your IronWoman journey?

High: Winning the U15 Aussie Ironwoman in 2019.

Low: I haven’t had too many lows.

What do you think about on the start line?

What the ocean is doing and where the best places to go out and in are.

How do you relax away from competition?

I love jet skiing, cooking and chilling with my friends!
