Successful Olympic qualification!
After 10 weeks of traveling around Europe competing, I'm finally back in Australia . The good news is that I qualified for the Olympic Games! I'm so thrilled and excited to be going to Beijing !
In the next few months I'll continue to train intensively as well as compete in additional tournaments to improve on my world ranking. Rankings will be determined for the Olympics based on points as of 1 August this year.
Upcoming competitions are the Asian Fencing Championships in Bangkok , and World Cup events in Nanjing , Montreal and Havana . In July I hope to go to Europe for a couple of weeks to train intensively. Then in August I'm Beijing-bound!
Funding remains an issue with continuing travel expenses, so any sponsorship assistance would be most appreciated.
Thanks for your support and keep wishing me luck!
