Melbourne hopes and dreams

We are now only 52 days away from the opening ceremony of the Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Games, and this seems as good as time as any to start articulating our hopes and aspiration for the Games themselves.

For the individual triathletes my hopes are that they all get there in good shape, with no major injuries and are able on race day to give of their best, with no mishaps which prevent them from giving of their best.

Personally, first and foremost, I hope all the logistics work, re travel, accommodation and training facilties. I also hope we have an enjoyable trip where we make the most of the experience, in making new friends both in and outside of the sport of triathlon. Furthermore, I hope we get to see soem great sporting action, with great performances and maybe the odd world record.

More than anything, I hope we come away from Melbourne with some great stories to tell friends and family, and that as a team we still get on well enough to want to re-tell those stories to ourselves in years to come.
