Eve is a competitive young triathlete from Quebec, Canada and has already achieved a lot in a short time. She talks to Sundried about life in triathlon.
Have you always been into sport?
Yes, I've been swimming and running from a very young age and I've been playing tennis since the age of 5. When I was 11 my dad started doing triathlon, which inspired me to take it up too.
What’s been your favourite race to date and why?
My favourite race was the 2017 Charlevoix triathlon in Quebec, Canada. In this race, I came 2nd and it was my best performance since my triathlon debut!
And your proudest achievement?
I have many accomplishments of which I am proud, but I have two in particular. The first is to have run under 45 minutes for a 10km and the second is to have started trail running and mountain biking.
Have you ever had any racing disasters / your toughest race yet?
Yes, a few times! During my toughest race I found it difficult to keep up with the other competitors.
How do you overcome setbacks?
After each race I tell myself that my next race is another opportunity to push myself to my maximum even if it really hurts.
What is the best bit of advice you wish someone had told you before you started competing?
Give 110% and aim for first place!
What are your goals for 2018?
Achieve top 12 in the cup standings in Quebec.
Achieve 1st place in Xterra Quebec.
Run a sub-20 minute 5km
Who do you take your inspiration from?
My inspiration comes from Ironman World Champion Daniela Ryf, because if she is capable of realising a dream that seems impossible, perhaps one day I can be Ironman World Champion too.
