I get to meet some lovely people and children through the community work I do which I love and enjoy. I hope we can bring unity to the community!
I love Bolton because of the amazingly warm and friendly welcome we get from the people of this town. One of the major things for Ironman is to come to communities that want us. We feel like we belong here, we feel like part of the family.

I love Bolton because the local support here has been amazing. The crowds help to take competitors who are at their lowest point and raise them to their highest. We love being in Bolton.
