When opportunity knocks… put yourself out there and just try! You never know what might come of it. 20years ago, 16years ago and again tomorrow I will be slipping into yet another lycra suit to represent my country, my family, my support crew, my team with pride and compete at Commonwealth Games once again! 🏋 . Represented NZ in Gymnastics – CrossFit – Weightlifting. Proud as punch! ❤ . Thank you to all who have helped me along the way from the 14 year old girl in KL to where I am today. You all helped make the impossible possible. And for that I am forever thankful. . . @olympicweightliftingnz @nzolympics @gymnasticsnz @crossfitgames . #earnthefern #kiwiproud #nzteam #no3 #noregrets #allheart #opportunities #madepossible #gymnastics #CrossFit #weightlifting
