From a young age, Kendrick’s parents said, ‘If there’s something you want, you’ve got to chase it until you get it’ — and that’s exactly what he did in the sport of surf lifesaving. With a fear of water following a near-tragedy in childhood, Manly’s Kendrick Louis’s story is one of patience and perseverance, combined with a fiercely competitive spirit, which took him to the top of his sport, winning the Nutri-Grain IronMan Series title earlier this year. In this episode, you’ll hear about Kendrick’s love-hate relationship with surf lifesaving, where Mother Nature’s influence means it’s not always the best athlete who wins on the day. Plus, his determination and mindset in pursuing the Kellogg’s crown for 10 years, chipping away at his goal until he conquered it. He makes the point about the importance of identifying both your strengths and weaknesses — something this qualified carpenter has nailed perfectly.
