After having some time off after Olympic Trials last year, I had my first (of many) competitions to kick the year off. The Maribynong Open was a well conducted tournament with a great attendance. It was great to shake off the cobb webs and wrestle some amazing opponents.
Thank you so much to Victoria Wrestling Association for hosting a great event. Looking forward to the next one.
On the 21st of November 2016, I travelled to Kuortane Finland for the first official United World Wrestling Strength and Conditioning Course. It was a well conducted course with a range of amazing presenters. Some of which include:
Tamás Fehér, International Weightlifting Federation
Karoliina Lundahl, International Weightlifting Federation ·
Helen Maroulis, 2016 Olympic Champion, USA Wrestling ·
Mike McGurn, International Strength and Conditioning Coach
Ivan Ivanov, Founder of Suples Training Systems
I definitely took a lot away from this camp but most importantly I gained the following qualifications:
Level 1 - International Weightlifting Accreditation
Level 1 - Finnish Weightlifting Accreditation
Level 1 - Suples Training Systems
Level 1 - UWW Strength and Conditioning
Looking forward to attending the next course and expanding my knowledge. Thank you to UWW and everyone involved for making it such a success.
