Go-to pump-up song: "
Money City Maniacs," Sloan

Favourite inspirational quote: "Champions aren't made in the gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them - a desire, a dream, a vision."
- Muhammad Ali

Top tip for getting up so early each morning: Make the national team so you don't have to get up as early as club rowers.

Message to someone who might be considering rowing: Miles makes champions!

Why I love rowing and why it is the best sport: It is the ultimate team sport. You have to have an entire crew thinking the same way all the time. It's pretty awesome to create that kind of synergy on the water.
