Just a quick update to let you know I have been officially inducted as an Australian Flame member! The night before competition starts at every major championships Steve Hooker (Olympic, World, Commonwealth Pole Vault Champ) inducts the new members to the Australian team which are called The Australian Flames.
The newbies get to pick their "Flame number" which an athlete receives in their first senior international Australian team, and is their own individual number for the rest of the athletic career. I am now Australian Flame #89 !
Follow me and the other flame members on facebook, or at www.athletics.com.au
There is an exciting night on the track tonight with Usain Bolt in the 100m final and a huge good Luck to Aussie flame member Dani Samuels who is the reigning World Champion, and competes in the discus final tonight!
