Mes objectifs pour les Jeux d'hiver du Canada 2007

Mon modèle, mon inspiration
I don't really like to think that I look up to one individual in particular, but rather I like to take positive aspects from a great range of people around me such as my parents, coaches, friends, and other family members and build my attitude and behavior around the lessons I learn from each and every one of them.
Autres renseignements me concernant qui pourraient intéresser les médias
Initially, I was not even going to consider participating in the Canada Games, as I had taken a break from the sport of badminton for nearly 2 years. However, last year my old high school coach (who is also the Canada Games coach for Newfoundland & Labrador) gave me a call and told me that he would really like to see me make a comeback and take a stab at making this team. At first I was a little skeptical, but after putting a fair bit of thought into the matter, I decided to pick up my training again and give it a go. After a few months of training I got myself back into decent shape and became a good contender to make the team, and after a long tryout process I was successful and was named as a member of Team Newfoundland & Labrador. I'm quite glad I made the decision to make a comeback, because I'm sure this will be the experience of a lifetime for me and my teammates.
