Favourite race Hell of the West, there is something pretty cool about starting in the dark in a murky creek with the sun coming up and racing in the middle of nowhere, the locals really put in the effort as well.
Hardest race you’ve had to get too Ironman 70.3 Championships in Zell am See, Austria – 40 hours of travel!! Brisbane to Singapore, Singapore to Helsinki, Helsinki to Munich, then a 3 hour drive onto Zell am See. Totally worth it though, most amazing bike course.
Hardest race you’ve done Ironman 70.3 Vietnam in May 2016 was pretty tough, the heat and humidity was like no other. It was such a cool race and spot though, would do it again.
Biggest rookie error Buying a wetsuit too big for me and wondering why I felt so uncomfortable in it for over a year.
Best piece of racing or training equipment Love training on my S-Works Amira road bike in the off season or between races. Also my winter cycling gloves for when Brisbane gets ‘cold’.
How long in the sport 5 years
(Elisha is one of the toughest athletes we have trained. She commits 100% to every session, and leaves no stone unturned in her pursuit of personal excellence. Her consistent front of field results prove her hard work.)
Best thing about triathlon There is never a dull moment, especially when training with the Swift guys!
Best piece of advice your coach has given you Tough love, without the love.
