Before competing at the 2004 Athens Olympics, Moss completed a month-long build up in the US and produced some strong results without the benefit of tapering.

His pet peeve is drug cheats and his favourite teammate is Melissa Ingram, who happens to be his girlfriend.

During the 2005 Commonwealth Games Trials, Moss smashed the longest standing New Zealand swim record (held by Anthony Mosse) in the 200m Butterfly. Moss carved nearly half a second off Mosse's time, which was set in 1986.

His advice for others is to relax and enjoy what you are doing but at the same time be fully focused on what you are doing.

Moss believes it is desire, effort and commitment that make a good swimmer.
