A Date to Remember

August 5th, 2014….

This marks 2 years until the 2016 Olympics in Rio De Janeiro!!!

It’s amazing to think that we are halfway to our ultimate goal.  Since I have come to the Centre of Excellence, this group has evolved!! We started as a team from all different cities and coaching styles, blossoming into a family who love and respect each other; ready to work towards the common goal.  We have talked about this for so long, but we are finally at this point in the journey.  It’s incredible!!

TWO.   YEARS.   TO.   GO.

2 years

To my girls,

I remember when we 1st talked about this Olympic Quad.  We were a brand new team with so many obstacles to overcome.  Honestly, I think all of us were even a little scared to imagine that one day we would be the team that needed to fight for that spot at the Olympic Games.  All of us have worked so hard, decades, for this one moment that could ultimately change our future and the future of Canadian Synchronized Swimming.  Girls, look at how far we have come in the last 2 years!!  Its an uphill battle and it always will be, BUT REMEMBER, together we can move mountains!!  This is not an unrealistic goal, its possible and always has been possible.  All we need to do is push, together, as an unstoppable force toward those Olympic Qualifiers!

Love you always,


P.S  Special shout out to my amazing dad for his Birthday today!!! Love you! Thank you to you and mom for making this possible and never letting me give up on my dream! xo
