Speaking about her recent diagnosis of cancer, she said: "I was just diagnosed with a skin cancer this morning. Make sure you use sun screen and wear a hat people. Take sun protection seriously."

Recently, she also spoke about her desire to participate in the Olympics in Rio in 2016. She also wished to be a part of the commonwealth games in Glasgow next year.

She said: "I've said a few times I'd always like to make the Olympics and who knows whether as a 38-year-old I have that in me. I am racing Hawaii and that is a big priority, but I'll never count out trying to give the Olympics a shot."
