” The mistakes you make and lessons you learn at a young age are what gets you to an Olympic level. “


” There’s so many levels. You can rise on the day to win a national event or a world title but the level you need to rise to win an Olympics Games is another one altogether. “


” It’s an honour to be a world champion, and it can never be taken away from you. “


” You learn a lot from your first Olympic Games experience. Everyone thinks they’re prepared, but you never are. “


” In BMX, you need an inner mongrel, something that’s a point of difference in the female category. “


” There were times when I was down and frustrated being in a male-dominated sport: you don’t get the support. It affected me. Layne Beachley helped me beat that. That was the difference for me and helped get me through. “


” A female professional athlete has to have the whole package, as opposed to a guy who can just be good at sport. You have to have a job or go to uni or do three sports instead of one, you have to be a standout. “


” You never hold back. If I turn up to the track and feel cautious or not committed, I turn around and go home. If you don’t have that full commitment when you’re pedaling into a 40-foot jump, there’s not much room for error, and you’ll come off worse. “


” It would be simpler going to an Olympic Games knowing you had to nail one trick that you’ve done a hundred times, and if you do it, you’ll win. Or if you’re a swimmer, if you swim a certain time, you will win. In BMX, there are no guarantees. “


” You can’t take my batteries out, I’m always on the go. “


” I truly believe that it’s all of the hard times that make you step up to the next level, and that’s what makes you a champion. “
