After I spent two and half days at home, arriving from Hawaii, it was time for me to leave one more time this year. Destination – Perth, Australia, ITU world championship. I think my body was bit confused from all the travelling and time difference and I was also fighting a bit with flu I got on the way. But else I really enjoyed my time in Perth, I had a chance to meet with some friends from ITU circuit I didn’t see for quite long time and also race distance – double Olympic, was really good for me.
One day before the race I found out that I forgot to bring my racing shoes…upss…luckily I travelled in my Avia – Lite and one of my friend got in her race package elastic shoelace. She didn’t need them, so I put them into my shoes..only they were in Australian colours because Natasha represented Australia
Race itself went ok, I didn’t have my best swim, was too much fighting with choppy water and struggled to find my rhythm. Bike was windy and flat, soon we were group of 6 girls and we came to second transition together between 2-8th place. I had an ok run and finished in 5th place. Joddie Swallow from Great Britain had great race and she really deserved to win. It is nice to see her back after tough time she had after Olympic games 2004. I was also really happy for Bek finished in 2nd place.
