He said the memory of his grandmother helped him to secure gold in the 1km time trial at the 2010 Commonwealth Games. "I was thinking back to my nan last year [2009], when she passed away, but held on for six days for me to get home to see her because I was in Manchester for the World Cup at the time. In that last lap, all I thought about was her. If she could hang on, then I can." (theaustralian.com.au, 06 Oct 2010)
