I’m heading of to Tahiti tomorrow for three weeks of sun,fun and swimming! excited.
I want to take some time to say thank you to the people who have supported me and helped me along the way. I feel sorry that I wasn’t able to make it for you all but I thank you for supporting me at all!
Firstly I give the glory to my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, without Him I would be nothing. Thank you.
My Mum, Dad and sister, I can’t overstate the amount of love and support you have given throughout this time. I love you all, thank you.
To my coach Glenn Hamblyn, the hardest working coach in NZ. Thanks for everything.
To Craig Steel for helping me in understanding performance. Thank you.
To the EB team, thanks for the moolah! seriously though without the financial support I would have struggled to participate fully in the training programme this season. Thanks.
To the team at Scootling, thank you for providing me with the use of a scooter for the last two years. It has been great. Thanks.
Lastly I want to say a massive thank you to my family and friends who have helped me and supported me through every stage of my journey it has been an honour to share this with you, I love you all. God bless.
Ok so after a long week at trials I unfortunately did not achieve my goal of making it to London.
The competition started off very well with two PB’s in the 50 fly and things looked good heading into the 100 and 50 free later in the week. After an average heat swim and failing to make the A final in the 100 free I swam in the B final. With a very quick first 50 (23.79) I found out just how much the 100 can hurt (28 coming home) and finished with a 52.5. The day of the 50 free finally arrived and I felt that I was ready to pull one out of the bag. My heat swim was not flash (23.35) it felt like my legs were still raw from the 100 a few days before but I was confident I would rest up and be back for a big swim in the evening. Arriving back at the pool for the last time I felt good and was excited about the last swim and my last chance to qualify for LDN, a good warm up and I was ready to go. Through the first 25 I felt out of rhythm and I had some trouble with the angle of my hands and in a race as short as that by then it was almost too late, I had a strong second half of the race and came home strong but it was not enough. I finished in 4th with a 23.20. :(
Getting set to head into trials which will be a big week :)
THE TIME IS NOW
