Finally the summer season has come to an end.
A lot has happened for me, a few ups and downs, but overall it was a great summer. Started off strong, training in the gym went smoothly.
Training camps in Park City, and Hinterzarten, Germany went well and I was feeling confident for the Summer Grand Prix competitions.
Both Germany and France, Team Canada placed 4th in the mixed team competition which consists of 2 male jumpers and 2 female. Both times we were so close to getting onto the podium but there were no regrets because we all did our best out there, all we know is that we will get on that podium next year!
Russia and Kazakhstan was a good trip for me. In the second competition day in Russia I got my new personal best result after finishing in 5th place.
Than moving over to Kazakhstan, also in the second competition there I landed another personal best, this time ending up on the podium with a 3rd place finish!
It was a great day for me, the previous day I got very sick and was not feeling strong or ready but I am glad I pulled things together for the second day of competition.
My last podium in an international competition was back in 2008 where I won the competition in Baiersbronn, Germany. So really its been a long time coming and it feels awesome to be back on the podium.
Also after the Summer season I am now ranked 4th in the World Ranking, which I am super excited about! :D
I've worked hard to get to where I am now, and its pretty good timing as well considering the Olympics are so close. My goal now is to keep up this performance, become more consistent with every jump I take, and perform my best on the Olympic stage.
