World Championships here we come!!

It has been a fantastic two weeks here in Toronto training with my new partner Ahren Cadieux.  We have adapted very nicely to our respective playing styles and I am truly confident we are a threat at the World Championships. 

Last weekend I had the pleasure of competing in an Ontario Volleyball tournament with Christian Redmand while Ahren was at a funeral. Christian and I matured over the single day event and took the finals 21-17, 21-17 against a solid Ontario veteran team. I had a lot of fun switch blocking with Christian and I really impressed myself with defensive touches! In total we played 6 games over the Saturday and I was wrecked by the end of it.  Not since Highschool have I played that many matches in one day.  Thank goodness for my good friend Glenn who is a Muscle Activation Therapy specialist and he had put me in the physical condition to last the full day and not be crippled the following day!!

My body is feeling fantastic and after todays bump and spike against National Champions Matt and Josh, I believe we are as prepared we will ever be.  

Our flight is Monday at 5:30 so regular road posts can be expected now that we will be on tour!! The 10 day World Championships will be a highlight in my career and I am looking forward to executing my skills after months of focused preparation.
