Olympic Selection

10 people rate this

At the start of this month I raced and won the final selection trial for the 4th year in a row. It is the last chance for the team to race each other in two man boats called pairs and gives the chief coach, Jürgen Grobler, the final piece of information he needs to select his Olympic crews.

Start of the Olympic Season

I train between 1 and 2 hours at a time, 3 times a day, everyday of the week for 4 or 5 weeks before we get a single day off, for 49 weeks for the year.

 

At the end of the season we race the World Championships and after that we get 3 weeks away from the usual training venue (for an ‘active’ holiday) to let out bodies physically recover from that annual trauma. Now that 3 weeks has already disappeared!
