He touches on the circumstances behind changing coaching and management in 2017 and the transition period before coaching under his mum Elizabeth as well as the disappointment in Rio Olympics, why he performed as he did competing against the atmosphere of a full stadium and the lessons he used in Gold Coast, ending with how he comes up with his victory line celebrations and being on Strava.
