I have had the ride of my life but it has come to an end. As a child, I dreamt of one day being an Olympian and now I finish my career with two Commonwealth Games gold medals, the Australian and Oceania record, a three time Olympian and a 4th place at the Olympic Games. Wow!!
I have so many memories of my time as an athlete that will last a lifetime. I have travelled the world, met so many great people, learnt many valuable lessons and did things I never thought possible.
I am so proud of my career and thankful for those close to me who have supported, influenced and guided me over the years.
I couldn't have done it without you. Thanks also to all those sports mad Australians who have cheered for me and followed my career. Knowing that my performance can inspire people and make them proud to be Australian is so humbling.
