Bronze at ISAF World Championships and Olympic Spot

Have had a pretty amazing last few days!!! Managed to stand on the podium at the ISAF World Championships in Perth receiving the bronze medal. Was a tough regatta and I managed to work my way up the fleet to be in solid medal contention going into the medal race.
 Then just yesterday, became one of the first athletes announced into the NZ Olympic Team to compete at the London 2012 Olympics! Although this will be my second time to the Games it still felt just as good as the first time to be included in the team.
Plenty of hard work still to continue as I now have just over 7 months till showtime!
I have been pushed hard for this spot by the other kiwi guys (Andy Maloney, Mike Bullot, Sam Meech, Josh Junior) which has been awesome and I'm hoping this can continue through to the games.
Thanks so much to all my family, friends & sponsors who have supported me over the years!
Merry Xmas all and I wish you a great new year!
Happy Sailing,
Andrew
