BEIJING BOUND!!

So I know that it´s been a while since I last updated everyone on what´s going on but due in a large to my not having access to the internet, I have not had a chance to do much more than check the odd e-mail every once in a while.

Even now, I only have about 5 minutes so I´ll be brief. Long story short, I have officially made my Olympic team. The integral details of the how and why are too involved to try to explain right now. Additionally, I am not sure what sort of emotions I have right now because it has been such a difficult year for me of ups and downs, and struggles and problems with my jumping technique that I could never have imagined in a million years, let alone in this Olympic year.

I have never trained harder or been more diligent yet this year has proven to be the most trying for me. I can only hope and dream and believe that something even greater must lie in waiting for me because otherwise my struggle will be all the more confusing.

That being said, please don´t think that I am not grateful for the opportunity that awaits me. So many try and fall short for one reason or another and as an athlete, I can fully appreciate just how tough that is. To dedicate one´s life in every way to such a specific task; to eat, sleep, dream, live, sacrifice, toil, struggle, cry, thrive, in rain and cold, in health and in sickness, to put your all into something that can so easily not be yours is such a huge risk but the rewards are so amazing and unparalled. That being said, the opposite of that can only be described as devastating!

Anyway, I have to go. Someone is waiting to use this computer. I will give you the full breakdown in another couple of days when I have more time.

Before I do however, please just let me say THANK YOU to all of you have supported me with your encouraging words and kindnesses. It truly has meant so much to me!! I want to thank my family, my training partners, my coach and all of my friends who continue to hold me down. The journey would mean nothing without you all.

PS. DAVE, AUB, JOEL....carpe diem! Words do not express how much I am praying for your successes today.

Hey Jackie,

Congratulations! What a fantastic accomplishment. 5 OGs! Kirsten and I have been following your journey and just knew you'd make it. Way to stay the course. Hopefully you'll be able to make the technical adjustments to tap into all of your training and have your best performance ever. We'll be cheering you on.

Best of luck.
