Guess who’s been selected to represent Australia at the Sprint Triathlon World Championships in Chicago, September this year? Yes, that’s right… this little piggy!!! I am absolutely stoked and still pinching myself. After placing 9th in the NSW Championship and then 5th in the ACT Championship I knew I stood a decent chance but it was a long wait, month after month, before the Australian World Championship team was finally officially announced. I never expected to represent my country in any sport but I owe it to the accessibility of triathlon’s age group structure that allows people of every age to compete against their contemporaries at such a high level.
I’ll be blogging here about my lead up to Chicago and about my experience at the event. I’ve never been to the USA before and will be taking some time off after the race to also visit New York and Pittsburgh, USA and Montreal, Canada!
In the meantime I am also trying to raise athlete corporate sponsorship for myself and morethanpkd.com. I would like to use my trip to the World Champs to also represent my favourite charities; Medecins Sans Frontieres and the PKD Foundation. The local paper in my area, the Rouse Hill Times, kindly ran this story below and I’ve engaged the services of a Sponsorship Consultant so cross fingers!!!
Whatever happens between now and September, it’s all soooo exciting and I can’t wait to share this amazing experience with you all!
