Well done to everyone who paddled last Sunday. There were times during the day where people could have given up but we didn't, we kept going, no matter what! And it shows with the results.
It's no secret our morning race pieces started off rocky. The conditions were tough and the competition fierce. Instead of tucking our tails and running, each race got better and better and better. We locked in our rhythm, we stayed long in our stroke, we pushed the other teams to the max!
If this has shown us anything, we are certainly closing the gap on the top teams. And like Seb said there is still time for us to get more dialed in, to make up those extra seconds. The good news is that we have 6 sessions to internationals – plenty of time but we need to make the most of it. That does not mean people should relax. Let’s push on and show the other teams we've got what it takes to beat them.
If you are looking for motivation, think of the looks on their faces when they realise they have been beaten by a team that pride themselves on their heart over their own self-importance.
Keep up the good work everyone! 💪
