What is your favorite and/or least favorite workout? 3x300m with 3-4m rest is my favorite workout.  My least favorite is weight lifting.

What would be your super power and why? Teleportation. In this day and age, and in the ages to come, being somewhere in an instant is highly useful. Imagine our profession. You can warm up at your regular place then, POOF, you can show up to the call room at a major meet, then, POOF, back into your own bed between rounds.  Say there is a meteor heading towards earth set to decimate the human race but NASA has created a device that will blow the object off earth’s course, they just need a way to get it on the object. Give me a spacesuit, POOF, I’m on the meteor, set the device, then, POOF, back on the ground.  Say I’m hiking on a cliff edge, Oh No, I slip. No problem, just teleport to the ground or wherever. Possibilities are endless.

What is your spirit animal/what animal do you relate to? My spirit animal is a panther. Their catlike ways emanate calm and prestige and it’s hard to rival their combination of agility, stealth and strength.

What is an interesting fact about you that we may not know? I have to have fingernail clippers on every trip.

What is your dream job after your athletic career? Become a futurologist and study technological singularity.

What is the key to your success? Video games.
