Tokyo Games: Kaarle McCulloch

Tokyo Games: Kaarle McCulloch

Kaarle McCulloch is an Australian professional track cyclist heading to the Tokyo Olympic Games! The Tokyo Olympic Games will be held from July 23 to August 8 2021!

KZ: Hey Kaarle! Do you have any pre-competition traditions that help you focus?

K: I find it really helpful to focus on my breathing because I always feel quite nervous!  My heart feels like it is beating so hard and fast!  When I focus on my breathing, I can calm myself down!

KZ: When you were a child, did you have any hobbies that gave you useful skills for ?

K: I played every sport that I could when I was at school!  I loved to have days off to go play sport with my friends!  I think the sports that I wasn’t very good at taught me to work hard and try and improve and that’s my best quality now!  I am always trying to be better!

KZ: Other than cycling, is there a skill you have that deserves a gold medal?

K: Sleeping on the plane! I am normally the first person asleep before the plane even takes off!
