NAME: Charlie Taylor
CURRENT POSITION: Studying Personal Training, Pool Fencer
WHERE IS YOUR HOME TEAM: Northern Beaches
WHO DO YOU PLAY FOR: Manly
WHAT’S YOUR GAME PLAN: My game plan is to not waste any days, and train, study and work as hard as I can. If I can do this, my dream/long term goal will automatically become a reality. Treat people the way you would like to be treated is something I believe in.
WHAT’S YOUR STRATEGY TO ACHIEVE IT: I am training and studying very hard to get what I want. It's a big challenge but I believe if I stick to it and believe in myself I will achieve it.
LIST 1 OR 2 ‘GOLD MEDAL’ MOMENTS IN YOUR LIFE: I am lucky enough to have a few great moments in my life, and to list 1 or 2 is pretty hard.
I would have to say one of them is when I was 13 years old. I was walking along the beach when I saw two kids around 6 years of age being swept out of the pool by a wave. It was a quiet day and there weren’t many people around. I ran into the water and as by the time I got closer they were swallowing a lot of water and we're going under. I grabbed them both and pulled them to shore. It was quiet serious as one of the kids had passed out and needed oxygen.
Another big moment in my life was being selected to play for the boys in Australian Schools Rugby in 2013.
WHO ARE YOUR CHAMPIONS: I have plenty of champions I admire. One would have to be Eminem because he grew up with nothing, and worked hard on his rapping everyday. Because he was white everyone laughed and gave him so much misery and pain, but he stuck to it and has now proven a lot of people wrong. Arnold Schwarzenegger is someone I also look up to. He dominated bodybuilding at aged 20 and was the youngest person to become Mr. Universe. After his career in bodybuilding he wanted to become an actor and perform in movies, but people said that he was too big to be in movies. He stuck with it and then starred in his first movie, Hercules. He’s another person who didn't give up.
IN YOUR OPINION, WHAT MAKES AN EVERYDAY CHAMPION: What makes an everyday champion would have to be someone who is true and honest, someone who puts effort in everything they do.
WHAT’S YOUR MOTTO: "Today is a new day. Even if you were wrong yesterday, you can get it right today"
