Report From Sydney
National Coach/Manager Kurt Innes has sent in an update.
Made another step closer to the Olympics today. Tanya (Dubnicoff), Lori-ann (Muenzer) and myself received our accreditation today here in Adelaide. This may seem a small thing to all of you at home, but if you've ever been at a major games you will know that the hassle that you go thru to get the "sacred and holy accreditation" is not a small little thing. Here in Adelaide it was actually a breeze to receive, we went to the soccer stadium (where they are actually playing some of the qualification games of soccer) and within 1/2 hour we were all done! This is so cool, now we won't have to duke it out with 4000 other athletes on Saturday when we get into Sydney. I heard on the radio here that in Sydney this Saturday - the same day we are travelling over - they are expecting 4000 athletes to arrive. This will be a total freak show as people try to find their bags, get thru customs, get accreditation , etc. We now just have to breeze thru ,and collect our bags and get into the village (sounds easy now, hopefully it will go as smooth as I am hoping! ).
Also had a great couple of days of training yesterday and today. Yesterday the two girls were doing motor sprints. The "motor" here in Australia is a derny (a motorized pedal bike - heavy as hell though!). All told I did 7 motor sprints yesterday, and for all of you who have ever seen a derny in action you should now have much more respect for the driver of these things. I HAD TO REALLY PEDAL MY ASS OFF TO GO FAST! Did seven 11.0 sprints with the girls in tow, not bad I guess. After the session I was actually dizzy - as if I had just jumped off of a roller coaster!
Today did some sparring with Tanya . She is smokin fast, and really ready for the Games to get here.
All three of us are getting a little bit anxious, and are actually ready to leave the posh hotel and get into the villiage. I guess it is a good sign that Tanya and Lori-ann are ready to move to Sydney, that means we are all excited and feeling confident!
A beautiful day here in Adelaide actually. Our first day with weather over 20 degrees celcius! Feels weird to be in + 20 weather with a sweater, jacket, and long pants on. At home I would be in shorts and a t-shirt for sure if it was this warm out. Must be the thought that it is still very early spring here, and I just shouldn't be in shorts yet?
Thats it for now, more news to come.....
