CAN Fund Testimonial:
CAN Fund has given me the ability to focus more on my training and less on where my next meal is coming from. With the assistance from CAN Fund I’m able to train, study and plan for my life after sport, something that is very hard to do for someone who is never in one place more than two months at a time.

Best Result:
Olympic Bronze Medal 2008 Beijing Games

Fun Facts:
I love to read. I’m told I can be a little impatient. I love the outdoors and this December I’m spending three weeks climbing Aconcagua, the highest mountain outside the Himalayas, in Argentina. I’m doing this as a fundraiser for a charity my partner Una Lounder and I are busy setting up.
