Please send out some good luck vibes !!!

#1 Postby Mini Forklift Ⓥ » Thu Aug 02, 2012 11:26 pm

Hope some of you guys can send out some positives vibes for my wifes' cousins cousin, she is racing in just over 24hrs time in the womans triathlon. Big race for her, she's just been given the flag that all of her friends and family signed for her (she didn't know about this so it would have been a nice surprise).

I'm sure she's going to do pretty well, she's said she is aiming to be one of the first out onto the run after the bike leg, if that happens then she should be in the hunt for a medal of some colour. Big family occasion for us all tomorrow night, huddled around the TV and shouting lots haha. GO ANDREA !!

Nice! I assume you're talking about the Olympics. I plan on watching that event as much as I can. I'll be rooting for her.

She did really well, but she's pretty disappointed. She was the first off the bike, then by the last 2kms she was in the first 5 runners and in the hunt for a medal. But at the turnaround buoy the gas went on and she couldn't quite hold the pace anymore. She got 6th place, which is still awesome for NZ :D

Looking forward to catching up with her when she gets back, her boyfriend Laurent Vidal is racing in the mens triathlon in a couple of days time so at least she can relax now.

Congrats to her for all her hard work and efforts. 6th isn't too bad!

She's going to try and get into the squad for Rio, realistically that will be her last chance I would imagine.
