2015-2016 Season Begins

184 days until the Olympic Qualifier

Hey Everyone!

We’re back!!! I have to say, it has been very nice to reconnect with my synchro family again. 3 weeks, physically, is not enough for all of us to repair our bodies, but mentally it was time to come back.

This is going to be the toughest 6 months of our lives. This is it; our make it or break it moment that will change our futures. I know that many aspects of this sport are out of our control, though this angers me and it doesn’t feel “fair”, we can’t change that. The only thing we CAN do is decide that we want to go to the Olympics and work our butts off to get there. The sacrifices we’ve made for this sport are, for some people, insane, but for us it’s what we have to do to make our dreams reality.

We know it’s going to be hard. The odds are not currently in our favour… (Cue Hunger Games theme song)… I have never felt so heartbroken as I did after World Championships, but I am ready to fight and after seeing the girls train this 1st week I can proudly say that WE are ready to fight.

We have come back with great ideas and choreography which I think will be a game changer in the future. I can’t wait to see our routines fully formed. I know that if we can pull off some amazing routines and swim them like I know we can, we will be proud no matter the outcome… Although going to the Olympics would be “icing on the cake”.

Together we will move mountains.
