Finishing 2011 With a Bang!

So I am writing this from my tiny flat at the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra. I’m here for a week-long training camp with the Australian Judo Team in preparation for the Samoa World Cup next month.


Since the Worlds last August I’ve had some ups and downs. I had torn a ligament in my knee just days before Pan-Am Tour in July, but kept it under wraps and nursed it as much as I could.  However, by the time the competition care round, it was really impeding my game. The only solution was a couple of weeks of significantly scaled back training.


By late September the knee felt okay, and I entered the Australian University Games for some fun and to test the muscle out. I ended up having a bunch of fights, winning my division and the Champion of Champions event, without getting injured.


Training has been a million miles an hour since then in preparation for my final three events of the year. I will be entering the Samoa World Cup in November where I will be looking to improve on last year’s bronze medal and hopefully contest my first world cup final.

I will then come home for a couple of weeks before attacking the Tokyo Grand Slam and Qingdao Grand Prix - and hopefully taking a big step towards securing my qualification spot for London 2012.


Well, I quite literally have to go and start the taping up process to make sure I get through the next training session in one piece. 


Will post again soon. Hopefully with some good news.

What happens now?

Now that the Olympics is done and dusted I’ve got to make some big decisions. I have refused to make any plans until the Olympics were done and now it’s time to shape my short, mid and long term future.

Progress – How the hell do you measure it?

Judo is one of the easiest sports to make you feel miserable when you are not winning, and the complexity of the sport can lead practitioners to feel like they are getting nowhere or even going backwards.
