The 18-year-old will step up into the men's elite level next year, which brings the Tokyo Olympic Games in 2020 onto the horizon.

"That's one of the big goals, but I'm just going to start off with the first year of elite," Rodway said.

"Everything's going well at the moment, all the preparation's been good and just got to see how I go next year.

"Olympics if the biggest goal of them all, but the next goal is America and going over there every now and then, getting my name out there and eventually trying to make a living out of it."

Tokyo's also a goal for Curtis as she looks to put her back into resurrecting her career after some injury woes.

It's an injury she's got to manage or it will flare up, but she's hoping to put it all behind her.

"I've been battling with a bit of a back injury the last few years, which has been pretty annoying, but we're working it out now and it seems to be kind of in an OK spot where I can get everything that I want to done and not disrupt it too much," Curtis said.

"I've got a bulging disc and a little bit of nerve pain. As long as I manage it well, I've got to do something good for it every day, if I don't then it's going to get sore.

"[Tokyo's] definitely something to work towards. This year I've been trying to get my strength back."
