It’s the first day of the week, I hope y’all have a productive one.


The 2015 World T&T Championships wrap up today and there’s Olympic qualification on the line in men’s and women’s trampoline. Watch LIVE!
Even though Johannes Schoettler and me put on a good performance in yesterday’s semifinals of the Brasil Open, we could not win against Wang/Zhang from China and went down 21:19, 16:21 and 16:21. Reaching the finals here would have been great, but overall, I guess we have to be satisfied with our tournament.

Trotz einer guten Leistung im gestrigen Halbfinale der Brasil Open konnten Johannes Schöttler und ich nicht gegen die Chinesen Wang/Zhang gewinnen. Mit 21:19, 16:21 und 16:21 mussten wir uns aus dem Turnier verabschieden. Das Finale zu erreichen, wäre natürlich super gewesen, aber alles in allem können wir mit unserem Abschneiden zufrieden sein.

6K erg competition. Finished 4th but everything is alright and going well. Congratz to my team-mates for securing the top 3 spots!

“When we finished the exercise I was very happy because I knew we had done something that was worthy of a medal. I believed it 100 percent. It’s my first World medal, so of course it has a particularly special meaning.” — Allan Morante, France, 2015 World bronze medallist in Men’s Synchro. #wch2015 #Trampoline #Gymnastics

Advent Advent und in Lichtlein brennt. Erst eins dann zwei dann drei dann vier … Dann steht das Christkind vor der Tür! Ich wünsche allen einen schönen ersten Advent.

Had a great week of racing here in Takapuna at the 2015 Finn Gold Cup (World Champs). Some testing conditions at times over the week and dropped a place today to end up 4th overall. Would have been great to finish off this season higher up the standings, however on the plus side, I’m more fired up then ever for what next year brings!
Congrats to Giles Scott on an excellent regatta as well as the Takapuna Boating Club, NZFA,IFA & Regatta officials for an awesome event. A huge thank you to friends, family, YNZ, coach- John Cutler, HPSNZ + support staff and of course my amazing wife Natalie for all the support this season.
Looking forward to getting home and spending some time with my family.
Cheers AM
