COMMONWEALTH SILVER MEDALIST LONG JUMP
The Turning Tide - things are looking up.
After a successful Commonwealth Games placing 2nd, doors are opening and things are looking up.
After briefly holding the games record for 24hrs and showing a level of consistency by backing up 8.34m in the qualifying with 8.33m in the final, meet promoters are taking notice.
The Shanghai Diamond League will be the first stop on my international season, which will hopefully be followed by starts in the Rome DL and Stockholm DL. These competitions, I hope, will provide the opportunities to jump a distance above and beyond the current Australian record of 8.54m.
Disappointing end to a brief season
Due to the short time line that existed between my hamstring tear on July 4th & the Worlds on August 4th I was unable to move through to the World Championship finals.
I will now take a few weeks of to let my hamstring fully recover before preparing for The world indoor championships in March and the Commonwealth Games in April!
