Iโ€™m still trying to process the past 24hours but I would like to give a massive shout out to a bunch of people who made this experience possible. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ – My coaching team, the 3 of you executed the game plan perfectly. I couldnโ€™t have asked for a better team. ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿฝ – Thank-you so much to all the volunteers for all your help not only in competition but throughout the past week in training. ๐Ÿ˜ – Thirdly a huge thanks to all the officials. You all ran a fantastic competition. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ – Also thanks to the team at Channel 7 and all the interviewers from all the other stations for all the fun last night and this morning. ๐Ÿ“บ – @adeecazayoux from @workingagainstgravity for helping me with making weight. You are such a beautiful soul and I am so grateful for your ongoing support. โš–๏ธ – AND……I wanted to leave the best for last…..THE CROWD!!! WOW!!!

“๐Ÿ’šAnd itโ€™s over just like that. ๐Ÿ’›
I didnโ€™t get much sleep as I have just been thinking about what an incredible battle I had with the other ladies on the platform. ๐Ÿ‹๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ

I would have to say, out of all the amazing Weightlifting experiences I have ever been through last night was by far my highlight, not because of the gold medal but because of so much more! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ

The performance from ALL the athletes in the 58kg category, the crowd roaring every time I entered the room, my family and friends being there to support me (including Jadey in Spirit) and having the best coaching team in my corner, Shane (Husband & Coach), Miles & Greg (Competition coaches). ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ

To me that is what competition is all about, getting to showcase all the hard work we have put in over the years. Congratulations & THANK-YOU so much ladies, we are all CHAMPIONS in my eyes as that was an incredible performance from each and everyone of us. It was a true honour to have been apart of it. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ”
