As the Commonwealth Games draw to a close I feel such a sense of pride & gratitude. It’s such a special privilege to have the opportunity to be a part of a home Games & it’s something I’ll never forget.
I owe so much to my coaches @chava_sobrino & @_joel_rodriguez. You’re far more than coaches & I am so thankful for all the things you selflessly do for us to help us achieve our dreams.
Big thank you to @precisionathletica for working tirelessly to manage my injuries so I could still have the opportunity to be here & compete. I wouldn’t have been able to push through without you @nils_hestermann @jayeno
Thank you to John Novak for all you’ve done to help me become a better competitor with a positive mindset.
Thank you to @nswinstituteofsport who have supported me for many years.
Thank you to the wonderful people who give me my training gear, & the people who fuelled me for Commonwealth Games, & the people who have kept my body literally taped together for training & competitions, & to the people who are educating me. I am extremely grateful for all your support.
To my family, thank you for always supporting me & helping me through all the highs & lows. It was so special having you guys here to experience this with me & I love you all.
To everyone involved in organising these Games, all the volunteers who have given their time for us, & all the Australians sitting in the stands or at home cheering us on, a heartfelt thank you for giving us the most memorable Commonwealth Games that I’m so proud to be a part of.
To everyone who follows me on social media & takes an interest in my diving & my life, thank you so much for the huge amount of support you give me & the kindness & encouragement through all the ups and the downs.
Lastly, a huge shoutout to the most amazing Australian Diving Team I’ve ever been a part of. We have had fantastic results at these games & I’m so proud to be a member of this team!!

When your cousin is a dead set Aussie legend!!
I had the best morning watching the @aussie7s with @chuckystannard. The boys were awesome and I'm so happy James is on the mend.

Nothing can beat the roar of a big Aussie crowd willing you to win, and having my family there to share the experience with me. I honestly wasn’t sure this broken old body was going to make it, but my gosh I’m glad I kept pushing it these last few months. And now I’m off for a cortisone injection in my wrist to try and keep it going for another couple of weeks for World Series.
@chava_sobrino @_joel_rodriguez_ we did it!! ❀️
Thank you all for all your support and kind words of encouragement, you really don’t know how uplifting they are!

So far these Commonwealth Games have been very bittersweet. On the back of the devastating news about my cousin James, unfortunately my synchro partner Taneka has been given heartbreaking news which has meant she has had to withdraw from the Commonwealth Games and retire immediately from diving.

We have all worked so hard and pushed our bodies to their limits for the honour of being a part of a home Commonwealth Games. To have that taken away on the eve of the Games is unimaginable. My heart is broken for Taneka and James.

Taneka I have loved being your synchro partner, team mate and friend. I’ve loved travelling and competing with you and really getting to know you. You are a strong and determined young woman and I’ve always admired your work ethic and integrity. I am going to miss you very much ❀️ Taneka’s withdrawal has meant Teju Williamson has stepped in and will do synchro with me. It’s a hard situation for all of us and we all have mixed emotions, but Taneka has been so gracious in embracing Teju, and Teju has been very sensitive to Taneka’s situation. My job now is to take Teju under my wing and make sure she has the very best experience possible. We have never dived together before but we are working super hard to put in the best performance we possibly can in the short time we have.
Sport is wonderful and exciting, but it can also be so very cruel. My heart is heavy and my love and thoughts are with my cousin James and my extended family, and with Taneka and her family ❀️❀️ @tkovchenko @teju_williamson @chuckystannard @commgamesaus #diving #synchro #gc2018 #commonwealthgames #goldcoast #divingfamily #love #sharethedream
