Three characteristics frequently seen in successful athletes:

  1. Consistency in training
  2. A positive, driven attitude towards training as well as high levels of commitment
  3. A “never give up” mentality

And on how she manages her life as a coach today:

It’s all about balance. I’m a very focussed and motivated person but I also like to have fun too. So we go out for dinner once or twice a week, I’ll have a drink of wine if I fancy, but in moderation it’s all fine. At the end of the day, this [racing as a pro] isn’t my career anymore. Life’s too short and I want to be able to enjoy all parts of my life.”
