Been a bit slack....

Sorry to all who have been checking for updates.... got a little busy. But hopefully you all could catch a glimpse or two of our games or at least the results. So closest games I have played in, headed into extra time in the Quarters, Semis and Final.... gee talk about a heart stopper. 

But as you all may already know, we came away with the Bronze!!! Great result! Although not what we went for. But how can you not be happy with that. Not every comes away with an Olympic Medal. 

A massive THANK YOU to everyone who has supported me over the last year, plus all of you who have followed by journey from the very beginning in 2000. 12 years of blood, swear, tears and hard work. Not sure where I am heading to from here, but am planning to enjoy my time off. To the Australian Red Cross Blood Service for all the time off, it's fantastic to be apart of an amazing company! To Griffith University for all there support and time off of the last few years. To the QAS, AIS and VIS thanks for everything you have provided me in regards to training and staff, fantastic work!

  With the parades next week and no uni until next year I am really looking forward to enjoying the next few months.

Quarter Final Time

Wow, the last few days have been hectic! Lots of training, meetings and games, we haven't had a lot of down time. But it seems things are paying off with finishing top of our pool and will be playing China in our quarter final. Seems like deja vu, as we played China in the quarter finals in Beijing. 

 Over the last few days we were lucky to get a sighting of some of the Royal family (Will, Harry and Kate). Even managed to get a happy snap with some of the girls and Will.

It's been great having a massive support team behind us during the games. Loads of green and gold in the stands as well as plenty of polo caps and crazy wigs, great to see. But now the real games begin, where one loss or bad quarter will see you miss out on a chance for a medal. So we are back and working hard on our mistakes in previous games so we aren't making the same ones. Working on all the little things.

Tomorrow will definitely get the nerves going.... Swim off to commence at 4:10 London time. Just a quick shout out to all of you who are up at all hours of the night to watch us play. Can definitely feel the support coming through the email,  texts, facebook and tweets.
