My mum, Alison McManus
Tell us how they made a difference and share 3 words that describe who that person is to you.
My mum has always been a huge supporter of my athletic career. More importantly though, she has been a huge inspiration. She has completed three Ironman Triathlons and has shown me how strong physically and mentally she is. Watching her train and compete in different events has really shown me how you can push your body and your boundaries to succeed.

What is the best part about representing Canada?
