Oliva is the kind of human that looks in the face of adversity and doesn’t blink. Comfortable on all forms of bicycles, this girl goes particularly fast when it comes to wearing the silver fern and ripping around in circles on the boards. But being a kiwi chick, she gets stoked on sitting out in the surf, away from all the rigors of daily training and watching the sun come up. Hailing from Christchurch, this epic human is currently based in Cambridge, New Zealand, training with the national track cycling team.
My towelie of choice... The Liv! Of course.
I'm inspired by... those who are passionate about what they want to achieve in life and are also getting out there and getting after it. Seeing other humans doing whatever it is that lights them up. It helps me to keep motivated and reminds me to branch out, try new things and get out of my comfort zone.
Values I live by... ‘Character. Excellence/. Service for the glory of God’ – this was part of the mission statement of the school I went to and it’s something I continue to hold to.
I can't resist... anything fast, fatty & fabulous.
