Build up to Olympic Games 2008

Hello everyone,

NOW I am excited! I have less than 1 month until the Olympic Games.

The Kitzbuhel World Cup in Austria last weekend was my last preparation race. I finally put out a good run this year running 34.52 and finishing 4th, winning a sprint finish with Liz May of Luxemburg.

I have had a consistent amount of training since World Champs. From Vancouver I headed to altitude in Font Romeu, France for 3 weeks where I spent a lot of time with Merja Kirvanta from Finland, John and Rob Creasy. I raced a french club race 3 weeks ago in Beauvais and now i'm spending 3 weeks at the NZ base in Limoux, France.

I travel to South Korea on Saturday for 12 days to acclimatise before flying to Beijing on 15th August. I will be outside the village, staying at the Triathlon venue for 3 nights before the event then moving into the Olympic Games village for 10 days and I will be at the closing ceremony.
