11 days until #TO2015
Today marks ONE WEEK before we leave for the Pan Am Games!!! I think I can speak for the rest of the team when I say that we are very excited to compete in Toronto. These are our games and we are so happy to be celebrating our achievements, thus far, with our home country. It is going to be a very BIG, very exciting experience for us. Most of this team has not competed at a Pan Am Games, so we are going to soak in every minute of it.
I think it’s very fair to say that we have had our share of ups and downs this year. Like any team, we have been working out the kinks and have been striving to make our routines ones that the audience, and the judges, will remember… Over the last 175 days we have become so much more of a unit; One team that will compete together and win together. Whether that is a gold medal around our necks or the satisfaction of having a “best swim”, we will be smiling. I am proud to say that these girls are my family and every day they show me how strong they are. As a group, we can move mountains.
Heading to Toronto soon, I would like to say a quick thank you to everyone who has supported this journey. The coaches and athletes could not have made it this far without our tremendous staff of experts and of course the family and friends that keep us sane on a daily basis. Your listening ears…. well, reading minds, that keep this blog filled with viewers is an inspiration in itself. So THANK YOU!!
Now, go share!!! Share our journey with your friends and family! Throughout the Games we will be working with our photographer to keep this blog up-to-date; filling it with photos, videos and info from inside the Village, Competition Venue and all other amazing things, such as the Opening Ceremonies!! If you aren’t following this blog yet, now would be an exciting time to start!
Hey Everyone, we’re back!!
Rio. One word: breathtaking.
We had such an amazing trip, thanks to the COC. Team Canada’s purpose in Rio was to look at our Olympic Village and prepare ourselves for the 2016 Games. We went to our training facilities, our Olympic pool, the Village and saw many more exciting things.
It was an amazing experience and such an inspiration for us as we fight for these Olympic Moments to be ours in just over a year.
Although our soul purpose was to train hard and learn the most from our Olympic Committee, we also had tons of fun together! That’s the key: find fun in everything you do, that’s how you keep your passion!
Thank you so much for all of your love and support! This has been an incredible journey and I can’t wait to experience the rest of it which my synchro family!
Happy WEEKEND!! The team and I have had a great week at the pool. Although we did have a very tough training schedule, we pushed through and made it to today! I just want to take this moment to say how proud I am of this team. We have been working incredibly hard; mentally, physically and emotionally, to meet the standards of our coaches. It’s Saturday and are ready for a much needed rest day!
Excited to have a team brunch tomorrow with the girls!
