This is My Year…

By January 22nd, 2014 Blog No Comments

After another World Cup race win last Friday in Igls, to tell you that I am intending on taking the Overall World Cup title in just 2 days time doesn’t seem enough excitement for one week..

I HAVE BEEN SELECTED TO COMPETE FOR GREAT BRITAIN
AT THE 2014 WINTER OLYMPICS!

Now that’s the sentence that I’ve been waiting 5 years to say! I’m extremely proud and quite relieved to get to this point, having spent such a long time getting here I’m totally focussed on enjoying my first Winter Olympics.

I love sliding at the Sochi track, and I can’t wait to get back there in a few weeks. I am an athlete through and through, and those who know me know that I am extremely competitive! I never go into a race to finish second and that’s the same for any World Cup race as well as the Olympics.

The Modern Olympics plays an important part in our society, promoting peace and equality as well as inspiring others to achieve in any walk of life. 90 years after the first Winter Olympics in Chamonix I’m proud to know that I will become a part of the most special event within my sport, as I will forever be an Olympian.

To find out who’ll be competing with me, use the Team GB website- TeamGB
Please continue to follow my journey here as I’ll be blogging all the way up until the race on the 13th and 14th February.

Please follow, like, share, and support me on all social media. Spread the word of the Sochi Winter Olympics!
