I’ve always loved anything to do with water, especially white water. You don’t have time to worry or stress about life.
You’re too busy having fun.
It’s something to do with the control you have. Or don’t have… I still can’t work that out…
I’ve been in Adventure beyond raft team for the past few years. This year we were invited to the new Olympic white water centre in lee valley, London.
We were competing for a place in the championships, to become the new Great British team or B team.
I didn’t think we had much of a chance though, our team captain managed to dislocate his shoulder a few weeks earlier and none of us had really done any training.
It was more of a fun run.
Don’t ask me how but a fun run turned into something serious.
We pushed hard through the competition.
At the award ceremony we discovered that team "GB" satayed as the "GB" team.
We came third. None of us were expecting great things so to be rated third in the country was awesome.
Until September that is…
