Aislin has returned from Rio and is enjoying a few quiet weeks before the Aussie summer season kicks off. Aislin placed 17th in her debut Olympics in Rio and thoroughly enjoyed the whole Olympic experience. The community of East Gippsland got right behind her with banners at the shire offices and in some businesses windows. The support from schools, family, friends, clubs and businesses has been amazing. You can't beat small country communities.
Over the next few weeks Aislin will be visiting a few of the local primary schools and settling back into the last couple of weeks of term before things get busy again with trips to coaching, training and state championships that are coming up in South Australia (intend to go at this point) and Victoria.
2017 looks like being a big year.
In what is exciting news, Aislin has taken 8th place at her debut World Cup in Baku, Azerbaijan. Shooting 70/75, she missed the shoot off for semi final places by one target but said from Baku yesterday that she's learned a lot from the event and is keen to build on that experience. After the conclusion of the qualifying rounds, in another first Aislin was invited to co-commentate the finals which can be seen on the ISSF YouTube Channel here.
