Emily’s friend Lavinia Chrystal has been selected to compete at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics. Lavinia will represent Australia in the Slalom and Giant Slalom. The competition commences February 7th – see the Olympic schedule here
See the Paralympic Schedule here 7 – 16th March 2014
Well done is an understatement for Lavinia’s Olympic journey, she has persevered, she has cross trained diligently, she held herself steady through injury, she kept focused, she endured long periods of separation from family and friends – all done with humour, grace and determination to make her athletic dream come true.
The World will watch while Lavinia speeds down bone shaking slopes – I know there will be butterflies in our stomachs as we will all be there with her!
Best of luck to the entire Australian Olympic and Paralympic Team.
