Hi, my name is Skye Wallace, I’m 17 years old and a triathlete.
I am originally from Huddersfield in the United Kingdom and moved to Melbourne 6 years ago in which time I have been lucky enough to become an Australian citizen. I began triathlons last year after many years of playing representative basketball and deciding I was ready for a change. I chose to join Casey Cardinia Triathlon Squad, my local tri-club, and have loved the sport ever since. I have competed in around half a dozen races and have been lucky enough to earn a space on the podium multiple times. One of my favourite moments in the sport was during my second race, when I bumped into another club member, who was doing a longer race, and shared words of encouragement before racing each other to the finish line. I love the community atmosphere that triathlon brings, although it is an individual sport, it is a team environment, people from all different ages and backgrounds can come together to chat and train. On race days you can feel the team spirit, with everyone cheering on every member of the club and celebrating each other’s victories. Triathlon is a great way for me and other young people to stay active and healthy and form lifelong friendships with other like-minded people. The sport provides an opportunity for everyone to participate regardless of their fitness, skills, or goals. I would love to share my passion for activity and health in the future and I am looking into a career in the health field when I finish school next year. I am really grateful for this partnership Metagene has provided me with, allowing me to pursue my triathlon goals while promoting the importance of an active lifestyle.
