I am proud, humbled and privileged to be selected to represent Australia at the 2018 Invictus Games in Sydney in October. A long term goal of mine since my injury was to represent Australia at these Games on home soil, in front of a home crowd, and to be able to share this journey with 71 other incredible and inspiring athletes is surreal.
I can not thank everyone enough for their support, and Game On Down Under!
This year I will be competing in running events and my favourite event, the indoor rowing.
I was asked what my hopes are for these games and I have to say that I hope I can work extra hard in the lead up to the games so that I will be able to compete at my very best in front of a home crowd. Of course I would like to get on the podium but no matter the outcome I will be giving my best.
I was extremely honoured to be selected on the team and so proud to represent my country in front of a home crowd. I was very lucky to come away with two Silver and three Gold medals for my efforts at the games.
