Just a quick update before we re-establish regular blog posts about our travels and adventures overseas.
Most of the team is flying to Europe in late November, with Alasdair, Hamish, Anna, Nick G. and Linky beginning their trip in Sweden, while Casey, Ellie, Ash, Jackson and Nick M, accompanied by coach Ewan Watson, fly first to Seefeld before heading down the Winter Universiade (World Winter University Games) in Val di Fiemme, Trentino, Italy. After this competition we will join the rest of the team in Ostersund, Sweden, and Xanthea will fly in just after Christmas as well.
Most of us will be a month in Sweden, before we return to Val di Fiemme for World Junior and U23 Championships, after which we head separate ways, be it back to Australia, Sweden, to Germany or elsewhere. Training reports will be forthcoming, but in the meantime we are all keenly awaiting short, cold days, abundant snow, tall mountains (not in Sweden) and lots of adventures! The dates to watch out for:
11th-21st December 2013: Winter Universiade
27th January – 3rd February 2013: World Junior/U23 Championships
7th-23rd February: Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia (one of our juniors is on the shadow team, and show the seniors some love!)
