Sudanese-Born, Proud  Australian Olympian - 800m Runner & Passionate Speaker 

Originally born in Sudan, I migrated to Australia as a refugee in year of 2004. I have since called Australia my home and with great pride represented Australian at the 2016 Rio Olympics, IAAF Athletics World Championships in 2017 and 2019. I am the current Australian National Champion over 800m and on track to represent Australia at my second Olympics this year in Tokyo. 

Migrating to Australia and a whole new culture has bought many challenges and at the same time opportunities. Sport has always played a major role in my life, throughout school where I used it to communicate with the students whilst learning english, and also learning more about the Australian culture, traveling the country for competitions and having the privilege to represent the country at the highest level of Athletics in only 5 years of picking up track and field. 

A well accomplished public speaker talking to corporates and schools, I cover topics including goal setting, overcoming adversity, team work, balance and peak performance. Studies included a Bachelor of Construction Management and economics at Curtin University and whilst passionate about further engineering studies I've decided to focus on Athletics leading to the Tokyo Olympic Games. 

my passions outside of the track involve building and construction, public speaking, developing communities and learning about cultures and languages.
