Less than 100 days to go

With less than 100 days to go until my Olympic event, and 81 days until the opening ceremony of the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Games, things are really starting to ramp up!

Fitness testing at the NSW Institute of Sport in Sydney last weekend was a success, with some positive results across the whole team. Everyone is feeling fit, strong and ready to take on the big season ahead.

Once again I've packed my bags the four-month winter ahead. Tomorrow I will leave Melbourne and fly to Calgary, Canada. Our first back-to-back World Cup's are in Nakiska on December 6th and 7th. From then on, we head to Europe for another six World Cup events leading right up to the Olympic Games. My Olympic event will be held towards the end of the Games, on February 21st. I'll be sure to keep you informed closer to the day on live coverage times in Australia and around the world.

The official Australian Olympic Team will be announced on January 20th which is also very exciting. It looks like Australia will have our biggest ever Winter Olympic Games team by far, with approximately 55-60 athletes expected to qualify (compared with 44 athletes in 2010).

And finally, in case you missed it, here is the link to Friday night's short interview on SBS World News Australia....
