What advice would you give to young female athletes interested in competing in the sport?
If you really want to be competitive in this sport you need to be dedicated to it and take the time to train, and train on a regular basis. Reach out to a current competitor and see if they would be willing and able to help train you. You have to show the commitment. Be confident in your abilities, stay humble and remember where you came from. We all started at the beginning.
