After seven grueling months of training throughout the country and a few tune-up regattas in Europe, Mexico and Australia, I was able to qualify the Virgin Islands and myself for the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. The stage was set at the World Championship in Perth, Australia where variable wind conditions proved to be the key to my success. I was the 27th country to qualify out of the first 36 spots awarded. What a feeling it is to conquer this feat the first time!
To all my family, friends and donors, I could not have done it without your full support. Unfortunately it doesn’t get any easier here on out. The spring schedule is packed with World Cup events and training camps throughout Europe and Central America. Funding at this time is crucial if I am to move forward and make a serious run at a medal.
Please support me as I represent the US Virgin Islands in the 2012 London Summer Olympic Games.
