Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games Team processing

November 18, 2019


Today we’re here in Canberra doing team processing for the 2020 team and what team processing involves is all of the potential athletes and officials who may become part of the team to go to Tokyo next year coming together to to gather information we gather sizes from them for their uniform. We get to know them, take photos of them for their accreditation And it’s really it signals the start of the campaign. It’s really exciting to see all the athletes and officials coming together to prepare for Tokyo 2020. I believe Tokyo will be one of the best games presented. It would be an ultimate experience to be a part of the Paralympics program. It’s growing every game cycle and the coverage we’re getting and just to be a part of that history would be wonderful and part of a wonderful team. This would be my first Paralympics. I’ve only been rowing for about 14 months now. Last year I was fortunate enough to get selected for the World Championship team went to Plovdiv in Bulgaria for that. That was my first experience in international representation and that was really exciting and just being here today is very surreal to see Paralympics everywhere and just realising actually this is a potential I could be in Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games Without the ACT Academy of Sport I wouldn’t be where I am without them. Post Rio there was a lot of changes within the sport of rowing of where centers are going to be and ACTAS picked me up And I definitely would not be here without their support. Their strength and conditioning, psychology, dietitians just general support all around. It’s phenomenal. I’m so excited to be a part of it.
