As a professional triathlete for 10 years, and part of the Australian Triathlon development system, Nat has plenty of experience with sport science and support staff.
Nat and I met when she was part of the 'Wollongong Wizards' triathlon squad and she now trains in Lisbon, Portugal as part of the super squad led by Paulo Sousa
A product of the talent identification program when she was younger, Nat has represented Australia at eight world championships and been on podiums at both World Cup and World Triathlon Series Level as well as part of the successful 2018 Australian Mixed Relay Team.
In this chat she speaks glowingly of the support received by experts such as Greg Cox (nutrition) Avish Sharma (physiology) and Paula Charlton (health/physiotherapy) and highlights the need for simple communication and the ability to 'translate the why' in those that support her personal and athletic development.
