• Flying Visit

    It's summer time and that means it's time to get racing again. The first race this summer for me was coming home for the State Ocean Swim Series Harbour Crossing in Auckland. This also means a trip home to Rotorua for me, as I have not been home since April this year so it has been a long time. With this race I made sure that I flew home a week early just so that I could catch up with family. In this first week off being home I ran a clinic for the swimmers in Rotorua and the Iron Maoris which I really enjoyed and always have fun doing these. I also stopped in at the Fulton Swim School in Auckland to talk to the competitive swimmers from F.A.S.T which I really enjoyed. Its always great seeing up and coming swimmers and talking to them about my experiences. Hopefully I can inspire them to keep swimming. While I was home I trained by myself which is always challenge and you have to be quite head strong to be able to do it.

    The race. The Harbour Crossing is always an interesting race for me. I have managed to win it 4 from 5 attempts which I can't complain about. This year it was another tough race as always with a strong field with the likes of Jarod Porta from Australia, Nathan Capp and Dylan Dunlop-Barrett from NZ. With these guys in the field I new I had my hands full. The race turned out the way I thought with a very tight finish where I managed to bring in my legs with 100m to go and take the lead for the win. Could not have asked for a better hit out to start the season with and can keep this season moving in the right direction.

    I am now back in Perth training hard and getting ready for my next race which is on December 14 at the NSW state open water 10k
