👦ATHLETE NAME…

James Moorhouse

🌎GREW UP WHERE..

Canberra... although I spent a year in NYC doing my postgrad so I guess we will never have a definitive answer. The hood or the bubble? Gangsta know gangsta.

🎉AGE…

29 and not at all upset about turning 30 next year.

👨‍🎓OCCUPATION…

Consultant by day, musician by night and nerd all year round.

🏋️‍♂️WHEN AND HOW DID YOU GET STARTED WITH US...

Three years ago I found a photo of me just prior to a triathlon. I looked like a tree from the waist down and a noodle from the waist up and decided it was time for a change. 6 months into CrossFit I broke my foot running so decided to give full time Crossfit a go. Since then I’ve been crossfitting 6 days a week and it has become my primary sport.

😍🤢FAVOURITE WOD? …. LEAST FAVOURITE WOD...

Favourite - The Open WoDs - the community and atmosphere see so many PBs - love it.

As for an individual one? Heavy Barbells and muscle ups, so Grace, DT and Amanda... oh and flight simulator.

Least favourite - Fight gone bad. 🤮

🤔IF YOU COULD INVITE 3 PEOPLE FROM ANY HISTORICAL PERIOD TO A DINNER PARTY...WHO WOULD YOU INVITE AND WHY...

Rachmaninoff - Incredible 19th C pianist, tortured childhood and amazing music - would love to show him how his music has continued to define the 21st Century.

Nikolaj Tesla - 18th Century Visionary who had his ideas stolen by Americans. Show him what he has brought the world.

Walt Disney - Needs no introduction. Would love to show him his legacy to the 21st Century.

Honorable mentions - Tutankhamun, Obama, Shakespeare, Joan of Arc, Freddy Mercury

🎶FAVOURITE WORKOUT PUMP UP TUNE...

Anything by Linkin Park because deep down at just an Angry white boy. Honourable mention to Imagine Dragons - Warriors
