Xtriathlon : Hi Felicity, thank's for spending a moment with us. Can you introduce yourself to our readers ?
Felicity : Well I’m 21 and a professional triathlete . For more info !

Xtriathlon : How long have you been in the triathlon circle ? What attracted you in this sport, how did you discover it ?
Felicity : I started triathlon when I was 13yrs old. I was a swimmer and wanted a change and triathlon seemed like a good challenge. I started racing world Cups in 2005.

Xtriathlon : You finished 6th in your first world champ in Gamagori in 2005. How did you live this success ?
Felicity : I was very happy with my 6th in Gamagori . It was my first elite World Champs and I was only 18. It gave me alot of confidence and I learnt alot for the following year.

Xtriathlon : You have visibly decided to run a lot more steps in the WorldCup this year. Is it just in order to qualify yourself for the Beijing Olympic Games ?
Felicity : Unfortunatly I didnt get selected in the Olympic team after the first few World Cups of the year . After that , I had to change my goals for the rest of the year . I decided to just do as much racing as possible and get my ranking as high as I could . Its been great fun and I am happy with the season so far. But I am still dissapointed that I am not going to Beijing.

Xtriathlon : In spite of 3 podiums (3 times second, one's third) in this year's World Cup, you won't go to China. How do you live it ? Are you disappointed missing this event ?
Felicity : Yes I am dissapointed . But there is nothing that I could do . It was the selectors desicion and there was nothing I could do . I had to just get on with racing . Fortunatly I’m still very lucky to be able to travel around the world and race and I’m learing and gaining a lot of experience which is a good thing.

Xtriathlon : You have been elected « Rookie of the year » in 2005, and you appear as, at 22 years old, a hopeful in Australia. How do you see the coming of your career ?
Felicity : I will just take 1 year at a time . I never look to far ahead . I guess I am still young and I will take as many opputunities as I can . Maybe I will be racing in London 2012 , but my next main focus is next years world championships on the Gold Coast , My home town !

Xtriathlon : What do you think about the Australians athletes (Erin Densham, brad Kahlefel for example) who run in France ? Does it attract you ?
Felicity : I don’t really know much about the French racing teams . I like France and still have many places to go to .The team style racing sounds fun and if its good money I’m very interested !

Xtriathlon : You could be satisfied with all these good performances. Nevertheless, every week, you change into a busisness woman for your main sponsor 2XU. Can you talk about this second activity ?
Felicity : I co-own 2 2XU shops in Australia. 1 in Brisbane and 1 on the Gold Coast (opening soon) .We also have an online shop . I always try and do as much to as i can to promote the brand .When I’m not training I try and help out as much as possible.

Xtriathlon : What are your hobbies ? (if you have enough time to have one)
Felicity : Reggae Music , cooking , painting , reading , spending time with friends / family.

Xtriathlon : Have you got a boyfriend ? (our readers are very interrested !!)
