Melbourne

Well, it has been a while between posts… And for good reason.


My World Cup season was off to such a strong start in December, winning my first ever qualification run, finishing in 3rd place in the opening event in Arosa and backing it up with a 6th place in the second the next day. All the training, tenacity and general management (of normal volume, preparation and Covid-19 logistics..) was paying off. I was exactly where I knew I should be.


And then all that progress came to an abrupt halt.


In official training at the third WC of the season in Val Thorens, France- I had a fall. I dislocated my elbow and my season was over. Within a week, I was in hotel quarantine. My left arm was immobilised and I was devastated, to say the least. You can read about it here.


Fast Forward a few months and I have found myself spending the week in Melbourne. This is a week I always look forward to, where our Winter Sports family come together to celebrate the year past- And prepare for the year ahead.


And what a special year this is- It is an Olympic Year!


On Thursday, we have our Australian Olympic Team Processing Day, where we come together to get informed on all things Beijing 2022, do our uniform fittings, media interviews and really get excited about the journey ahead. Then, to top the day off, we come together with friends and supporters at the Snow Australia Awards night. Tickets are still available!


I’ll post photos soon!
