I’m in Australia!

The Pressure is ON!

I finally made it to Perth, Western Australia after what seems like a week long odyssey along three continents to get here!  Back to summer time and warm temperatures, quite the departure from my training in England for most of this year.  The Olympic Games happens once every four years and I’m here for my final chance to win the US Olympic Team Trials for the London Olympics next summer.  I’ve been training here the last week with most of the “serious” athletes getting ready for their pinnacle.  I’ve thoroughly enjoyed coming back on the Olympic tour and with a much different perspective than the Olympics before this one.  I’m keen on making a personal best here; I’ve done a 180 with my training from primarily light wind training to high wind preparation.  I’m 10 pounds heavier than I was 4 years ago and really enjoying it!  Perth is a predominantly windy venue, but as anywhere I suspect race time to give a fair mix of it all.  More updates soon on why these games are different for me. Thanks for all your cheers!
