27th June - One Month Out

With a month to go before the Olympic opening ceremony Tiger #1 takes time out of the Sharks’ gruelling schedule to give us an update on their preparations.


To all Tiger members,

G’day from sunny Italy where we are a day out from the 8 nation tournament here in Consanza. The boys have been fairing well after some disappointing results in Kazakhstan for the World League Finals. We made some head way with good quality sessions against Greece in Athens. Here everyone enjoyed the better surroundings a local cuisine, which boosted morale and performances. There was of course no excuses for the results at the Finals, however, the ultimate goal is the Olympics and it is to our advantage to still be in a loading phase of training.

In the upcoming tournament we are pooled with Italy, Greece and Montenegro with the top 2 going through to the semi final rounds.

As we near closer to the Games you can feel the excitement building. We return on the 3rd of July, just in time for the Olympic dinner which Gavin and I are looking forward to.

Speak soon,
