A win at last

Two weeks ago I went to La Reunion to compete in the 4th round of the world I found temps of around 26 in the night and up to 38 in the day, it took some time to get used to as Newcastle is not the hottest place in the world.

The comp. Well I made it to the semi and then winning the semi doing 4 blocs in 4 attempts.

I thought that things could only get worse. In the final I felt good, doing all the blocs up to the last bloc. This left me in second place before the last bloc with Killien and Jerome having done the last bloc I was in the position where if I did the last bloc I would win and if I took a walk up Henman hill I would be 4th. Well to cut a long story short, I came out to the last bloc , focused and somehow I flashed it, my friend in the crowd went crazy. What a feeling having competed for 4 years, I have finally achieved what I had always wanted.

A great party followed which was the final touch to a great world cup.

This left us still with one week in this amazing place . allowing us time to get some good ticks in such as climbing, body boarding. canyoning, snorkelling and parapenting.

Then we had a long flight to Paris where I took the train to Amsterdam to see Suzan and we had a great time chilling and looking at the sights of Amsterdam, I can tell you their are lots of sights, then it was back to Frances for a business meeting but more about that later.

Home at last but not for long I hope .
