It’s been great to train in Tokyo🇯🇵 for several days and start to learn the ins and outs of the course. This is the view from the startline of the #tokyo2020 Olympic course. 🤩 Tokyo skyline and Mount Fuji behind and Disneyland in front ... they say Disney is where dreams come true... it’s fitting that the Olympic course where athletes will chase their @olympic dreams is next door!
Bringing my boat home to it’s natural habitat after a few months on European courses... there’s no place like home😍
Early morning sunrise sessions are perfect when you’re up at 4 with jetlag 😅
Glad I got my #GoPro out for a selfie at #alaqsamosque ... because our guide nailed the group pic 😅➡️ that tiling job does deserve the focus though 😍 so beautiful. Israel is such a pretty, fascinating and eclectic place 😍 #israel#jerusalem
The Dead Sea 🇮🇱 so salty and slippery and muddy 😅
#holidayspam 🇮🇱 This was at Masada - an ancient fortress built in 30 BC.. I can’t understand how they managed to build it on the top of the mountain above the Dead Sea 😱 it is epic.The Roman siege of Masada ended with a mass suicide of the 960 Jewish zealots who chose death over slavery.I’m enjoying learning about the history and culture here and taking in the incredible sights - I’ve never seen a desert before 😍
Now for a little break... first stop - Jerusalem 🇮🇱#shanatova
Reflecting on a big season, big reason to smile! Some great battles on the water, and finishing with three medals at the World Championships🥇🥈🥈! In doing so, I’m super happy to have secured my preselection for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics next year🇯🇵 .
thank you so much to everyone who has supported me and the team this season and past 4 years! I may be alone on the water, but takes many people to get me across that finish line. Including our @auspaddleteam coaches, physios, & support staff, and teammates 💛💚 amazing coach Myz❤️
