To be a successful elite athlete you need to dedicate your life to training & competing. To do that takes a huge amount of discipline, drive and sacrifices. This is what drives me and this is what I believe it takes to be successful.
It is very important that I represent brands that reflect & share my own values. I have been very fortunate to have worked with supportive commercial partners throughout my career. I take these partnerships very seriously and am proactively involved with all my sponsors in a variety of ways.
From now until Rio 2016 will involve taking financial risks and sacrifices to make it onto the podium. Partnering with additional commercial partners is essential to help me continue to train and compete as an elite athlete and to achieve my goal of being a repeat Double Paralymic Gold Medallist in Rio 2016.
