The year that was 2023

Dec 07, 2023

Recapping key nutrition lessons learned and top performances from 2023, plus outlining my plans to help you smash your goals in the upcoming year!


Key Triathlon Moments of 2023

Some epic triathlon moments from the past year that stood out to me include:

  • Lucy Charles-Barclay’s record-breaking Kona win. Her time of 8:24:31 sets a new course record for the women’s field.
  • Kona age grouper Leanne W’s inspiring finish. Despite a tough lead-in, she persevered to cross the line in Kailua-Kona.
  • Gwen Jorgensen’s impressive comeback. She’s racking up podiums in her bid to make the 2024 Olympic team. Definitely one to watch!
  • Smashing PBs and podiums for my Academy athletes like Jody, Erin, Kathleen, Kelly, Lynn, Cheryl, Ciaran, and Krystal. Too many wins to name!

I encourage you to take a moment to reflect on your own personal triumphs and achievements over the past 12 months. Celebrate how far you’ve come!



Nutrition Wins for Me

It’s been a massive year for me in advancing sports nutrition education through initiatives like:

  • Record enrolments for my January 2023 Triathlon Nutrition Academy open week
  • Winning a coveted Lord Mayor’s Women in Business grant plus a spot in their mentoring program
  • Professionally filming Triathlon Nutrition Kickstart 2.0
  • Reaching 100 episodes of my Triathlon Nutrition Academy Podcast

Take stock of your own nutrition accomplishments and knowledge gained. You’ve put in the hard work.
