When we get ready for a competition in canoe slalom, we can train on the channel in the lead up to the event, practicing different gate combinations and possible moves, but we don’t know what the race course will be until the day before when they set the gates. We watch the demonstration runs, but don’t get to actually practice before we race. Instead, we analyse from the bank, review video of the demos, discuss with the coach which lines or options we will take, walk through the course and visualise, and maybe also watch some paddlers racing before us. Mental preparation is just as important as our physical readiness, and you have to trust your ability and training to piece together the run and get the gates, even if you’ve never done those moves before ! That’s one thing that I love about our sport and what makes it exciting - it’s never the same. SO! If you’d like to see the @auspaddleteam and the world’s best athletes in action - come check out the international Whitewater Festival at @penrith_whitewater this weekend! It’s also Olympic selection for our boys! I’m excited to race ! ➡️ for race program . 📷 @dscribernz

Bush run this afternoon was fun except for the running 🥴😂 after mostly treadmill runs, it was nice to get back on the trails for the first time since I sprained my ankle at Christmas ! 🏃🏽‍♀️@adidasau @adidasterrex

Orange is the new black apparently. First time I’ve posed in a swimsuit and wetsuit cardigan 😅just missing my helmet, life jacket and wetsuit tutu (aka spray deck) & I’ll be ready to hit the rapids 😎 📷 @fernwoodfitness mag

Last week, I caught up with some of the local Firies who have been fighting some of the worst fires we’ve ever seen around NSW🔥. Usually, this time of year they would be trying to fundraise, however they’ve been so busy with these conditions that they haven’t been able to, so all your support will really help them at this time of year so thank you so much for your generosity and supporting the handmade Christmas cards for the RFS campaign! Together, we’ve raised over $3000! 🙏🏽 The fundraiser is still open and running until the end of December (although the cards have sold out) so, if you have a spare 5$ to shout them a coffee or put towards getting new equipment they will be so grateful !

Great night at the #ASPAS @theais_ celebrating the year of sport with the slalom crew. Honoured to have been a finalist for the female athlete of the year among some incredible women!

Hey friends ! In light of the terrible bushfires in Aus, I wanted to do something to support the Rural Fire Service. I’ve been doing some painting, and made a bunch of unique Christmas cards, there’s four different designs - Each one is hand painted by me and all funds will go towards the RFS. See my stories for more info! I’ve made a crowdfunding page - link in my bio where you can order one, or simply donate!
