Most memorable moment in your multisport career: Participation in multisport has afforded me many great memories, friendships and deeper family connections on top of the inherent health benefits. My most memorable moment was the awards ceremony after Ironman 70.3 Steelhead in 2015 when I qualified for world championships with my sister. My sister and I have shared great memories, advice and experiences in multisport. While this is an individual activity, I find the bonds and friendships are what makes the sport fun!
