Aspirations: To continue to improve and win fights at International events including World Championships, Grand Slams and World Cup events. By doing this I should be able to maintain a world ranking within the top 14 which will gain me a place at the 2012 London Olympics. If this day were to come, my ambition would be for a top 10 finish.
Who Inspires You: My husband who was an Olympic wrestler and 4 x Silver medallist at Commonwealth games.
My coaches Warren Rosser and John Buckley for their passion, dedication and devotion to the sport and their athletes. You cannot help but want to succeed with such a sound support base behind you.
As a mother I am also inspired by elite women athletes who also have children.
Within Australian Judo this would include Maria Pekli who competed as the last Olympics as a mother and gained a 5th place....I understand the sacrifces that are made at this level and truely understand how amazing that result was.
