On 12 January 2018 myself and 27 other athletes from around Queensland boarded a plane headed for New Zealand. We went for 9 days and learnt so much in our training sessions. We also competed in 2 separate competitions, The Colgate Games in Timaru and the South Island Teams Competition in Invercargill. It was a great experience for me. I had fun competing against other people and I made new friends. I also had so much fun doing activities outside of athletics such as jet boating, gondola and luge rides, hot pools, ice bar and Puzzling World. It was a great opportunity and I would recommend it to any LAQ athlete. I would go back to New Zealand any day!
