His partner Steph, whom he also coaches, is well known in the Tasmanian Athletic family, particularly for her recent and ongoing achievements as the Open Athlete of the Year. Steph is also is travelling to Canberra with Daniel to pursue her goal of reaching the Rio Olympics next year, after having won bronze in an International race in Germany. Daniel has coached Steph over the last 5 years, and both are well known in the Athletic community for their love and dedication of their event.
