We have been in Europe for over a week now and the training has been enjoyable. I have been training with Jernej Zupancic from Slovenia, which has been good fun.
I have just received a new fixed shaft Beta Large paddle from Jantex. I have decided to use 218.5 70 degrees for now and see how it goes but so far feels very good. I have been experimenting with equipment and training since Athens and I think I am now close to being happy with the gear I will stay with till Beijing.
Today the Drug testing officials came from the ICF which I was pleased about. I get randomly tested often at home in NZ and until now never while I am away.
