What I'll Do After Rio
In the end, I was disappointed that I fell short of my goal to win gold but I felt proud of my efforts given the year that unfolded. I didn’t hold onto the disappointment for too long as there were still so many incredible moments that I feel privileged to look back on with great joy. I changed my focus to enjoy the experience, support my teammates and explore beautiful Rio with my family.
“In the past few months I have learned that presence is the greatest gift amongst chaos.”
I have put my focus on doing my best, being present and enjoying the whole experience, the good, the bad and the ugly. Every part has made this year the greatest year of my life and I’m so excited to see what the next chapter brings.
Right now, I’m focusing on healing my shoulder and making sure it is 110% before I commit to a full tennis schedule. I learnt that the body needs time to heal and that I need to respect the process.
One of my biggest priorities, in the meantime, will be to continue giving talks for the Premier’s Sporting challenge as well as continuing to inspire people in regards to health and high performance.
Without my supporters, family, friends and sponsors, this journey would not have been possible and I would like to take a moment to say thank you to them for supporting me on this journey.
I’d like to give a special thank you to my sponsors, without whom none of this would have been possible: Goodman, EG, Head International, Superfeast, Eclipse Organics and a massive thanks to the Australian Paralympic Committee and Tennis Australia.
