Hi there, this is my first post about my Olympic preparation. For most people, I am sure they are saying that they are excited about the upcoming games and training is on track. For me, it is a little more complicated but it makes it all the more exciting.
You see, I not only dive for Australia I also work for Diving Australia. I am the National Talent Identification Coordinator and I love my job. When I retired from diving in 2006 after the Commonwealth Games I didn't know how I would contribute my time to my sport. I love diving and I would like nothing more than to see the sport grow an
d become bigger and better! It was the perfect role for me. This was the perfect job for me.
My husband was also a diver - he didn't do too badly. Just a World Championship Gold and a few (3) bronzes over two Olympic Games. We both retired to do our own thing. I was working for diving and Robert was studying medicine.
One year out from the Olympic Games and I get 'Olympic fever' and I itch my way into my bathers. Rob copies me. Ha ha..
First up - I have to lose some weight. Since retirement I have to lose 22 kilo's. yep - On a 5 foot frame, I look shocking!
Will talk again soon!!
