Welcome to the new year, Unfortunately I am writing to you with some sad news.
After taking some time out following our worlds, Nikki has decided that she no longer wants to continue the campaign. I am really sad that she has decided to step away, We truly were a great team and had made such progress in the last couple years whilst for the most part creating a very special friendship. Despite me making it look so glamorous, Olympic campaigning is a tough old world and huge commitment, one that needs 100% head, heart and soul, without all of them it just doesn’t work. So I understand Nik’s decision and truly wish her all the best in whatever direction she takes next. She will leave the campaign as a very close friend and I know it won't be the same for me from now on, no-one should be nikkiless.
As you can imagine this has created a bit of speed bump in the Olympic road for me too. I have to say right now Im not exactly sure what my route forward is, however, I am working with the team to see what opportunities are out there. I still am very focused and motivated, but I am also realistic, this is going to be a huge mountain to climb now, but I am already making few steps and hopefully i will be back up and running soon.
