The Aussie Sevens girls have entered the final few weeks of Olympic preparation for this year. The information we have received so far from the International and Australian Olympic Committees says that they are feeling very confident about the games going ahead in Tokyo in 2021. Fingers crossed!
We train full-time as a squad at the Rugby Australia facilities in Moore Park in Sydney. Our last few weeks of training have involved a lot of game scenarios and preparation, including playing against each other in a four-game tournament format. I haven't played too many games of sevens since returning from AFLW, and these have been a big reminder of how high the intensity and speed of the game is. It's been really great being back with some of my teammates from Rio 2016, like Emilee Cherry and Charlotte Caslick. I'm looking forward to a nice break over Christmas (that I'm sure will include a prescribed running program for Christmas Eve and Boxing Day), before getting ready to go again in 2021.
On the podcast this week, I interviewed Australian middle-distance runner Jessica Hull. While most of us have been stuck inside during 2020, Jess was competing overseas,successfully breaking the Australian record in both the 1500m and 5000m. She has qualified for her first Olympics in Tokyo, and is currently a professional athlete with Nike. She has a seriously exciting future ahead of her. Jess shares some amazing insights about how she focuses on what is happening in the here and now, and how she pushes through in moments of wanting to give up.
We've got some incredible guests lined up over the next few weeks, really looking forward to sharing them! I'm really grateful for the support from the team at Workplace Law, which gives me the opportunity to share the stories of so many amazing female athletes.
