He tried out for teams, eventually finding his place on the cross-country team and coming in first. "From then on I was training all the time and getting up at 6 AM to run for miles. At the age of 12 they put me in the school's under-18s team." Payne was bullied in school and took up boxing lessons, saying he "needed to find a way to defend myself, I was, at 12 years old, fighting the 38-year-old trainer.
