I’m the first Canadian athlete to get onto the new 2012 London Olympic course….and it’s AMAZING!!! I was helping out with the 2011 British Team Selection event and was doing the demonstration and foreruns for the races which took place over three days.
Leading into the competition I had 8 sessions on the water over the week. I was absolutely exhausted by the time the race came around but I just couldn’t force myself to get off the water, it was so much fun! The conveyor belt which takes you from the bottom to the top of the course allows you to fit in many more runs which can be a blessing but was definitely adding to my exhaustion!
It’s an absolutely amazing facility and I think it’s my new favourite. My hopes are to make it to my 2nd Olympic Games so I can race on this course when it counts. T-minus 450 days!
