Its hard to know where to start with this. I've been putting this post off for a while and with good reason. Its not something I'd ever think I would be posting any time soon. • • I've had conversations with so many people, those close to me and even strangers about the concept of retirement. It is quite an emotional thing for me to talk about without getting that pit feeling in my stomach. • • The two photos I've posted mean so much to me. One is the first time ever sitting in a bobsleigh and the other was after one of my last runs in Pyeongchang. So many phenomenal memories in between. • • If I thank everyone who was part of my journey in Track and then into Bobsleigh I would be here for years. You all know who you are and I will be in contact with all of you individually in due time. • • The places I have been, the people I have met, representing Australia at the highest level and most importantly the experience I have gained along the way absolutely fills every inch of my heart. I can't be upset with that 👐. • • There are so many reason why this is the right thing to do. Just know that it is the right decision for me. • • This doesn't mean I am leaving sport all together, it just means I have officially retired from the competitive side of Bobsleigh. • • My new life will soon continue in Canada with my beautiful girl and pursing things I am passionate about. • • This is not goodbye its just see you later ❤ I love you all 💋 and thank you. • • #retired #newlife #olympian #timeflys #track #bobsleigh #pyeongchang #sochi #legendsoftheNAC #life #journey #passion #sponsors #family #friends #thankyou
