The moment has nearly arrived. A moment, which seemingly forever has been one solely set in the future. A mere motivation lacking the conviction of reality. However, it has now reached the forefront of the present, the moment is now.
On 11th September, as I toe the start line in Rio for the 2016 Paralympic Games, I will be realising a lifelong dream. A dream born many years before, shaped by my learning of the legendary tales of Australia’s sporting heroes and my passionate desire to one day be like them.
I’ve worked hard, I've run countless kilometres since I begun training three years ago, always pushing in the hope that Rio 2016 would happen. Now it is happening, it is a reality.
Rio 2016, is the first major step in what I plan will be a long and fruitful career. I can’t wait to get started, to perform at my best on the world stage.
I will provide times and dates as well as ways to watch my race a little closer to the event!
