It's Official: We Going To The Games (Official Letter)
Its a special moment to final know the official selection of our rowing team has been done. To personally be given the node is amazing, especially considering where I was at some 4 years ago post Beijing with my back surgery. The other thing I like about this is a great friend and team mate, Nick Green is our Chef De Mission for the London Games. What an amazing journey for him also and to think we used to share a room together at the Atlanta Games and now he is heading up the whole Australian team.
Mentions must be made for all the athletes in rowing in Australia who were involved in the selection process for the team. The teams strength comes for all who have been involved. Also the many support staff who help us over here and back home it truly is a team effort and I believe the performances of our team so far and come London recognises the collective drive of an amazingly substantial group. The wider community in rowing plays a great part in all the athletes who will be visible in London.
Thanks to all who make our sport what it is in Australia.
