THE WINNING MOVE OF THE DECADE


I know it’s old news now but…

"I thought I’ll give it a go and I breathed in, shut my eyes and went through the gap." Sir Chris Hoy, Keirin World Champion. Seriously did that with his eyes closed. I love Hoy’s parents’ reaction in the upper left corner of this video. Priceless.

UPDATE: Check out Alfred’s YouTube Playlist for more highlights from last weekend’s World Championships in Melbourne. Full results are up at Tissot Timing.

MEANWHILE IN MELBOURNE!


I can’t believe it’s already that time of year. The UCI Track World Championships are going on this week at Hisense Arena — the last big international track meet before the 2012 Olympics.

I’ll try to find some kind of live stream but for now, check the details HERE.

I had let go of what I knew I was good at and spent time after time working on something I wasn’t so good at, and in the end, after all the toils and pain and struggles and sacrifice, I finally had achieved it. World Sprint Champion.

Anna Meares, first Australian female to win a World Title in the Sprint.



Quoted from Anna’s personal recap of the World Champs in Apeldoorn. On her blog, she gives us a play-by-play account of her three days in competition and how she won three World Champion titles including the Sprint. Definitely worth reading!

Without a doubt Australia has proven that they have the strongest country in track cycling this year — earning eleven medals, eight of which are of the golden variety. The Aussies surely will be the ones to watch out for next year at the London Olympics.
