I competed in Hong Kong yesterday at this amazing green track set amongst all the high rises (see pic on left of my physio Vanessa). I started with long jump at 9am, winning with a jump of 5.74 which was a seasons best and a big improvement on the Gold Coast last week. The competition was the longest I have ever done at 3 hours, there were 46 girls jumping and only one pit in operation so we finished at 12.00! In the middle of the comp I had a 200m which I won in 24.79, into a head wind which I was happy with.
I missed the last two jumps of the long comp due to a massive storm that came over (see pic below).
After a short break we had hurdles, I won with 14.50, a little slower than I would have liked but good to have another race under my belt.
I had a great cheer squad, some of my family who live here in Hong Kong came along and made lots of noise which was awesome!
We started warming up for high jump before another massive rain storm came over and the event then got cancelled after waiting at the high jump until 4.30 for it to stop!!
But overall it was a good day at the office and I managed to survive the increase in temperature from Christchurch!
We did high jump this morning at training to make up for the event being cancelled and I cleared 165 which I was really happy with considering the big day I had yesterday.
My coach Andrew and physio Vanessa are both here with me which is awesome.
