Late to the party as usual, but just in case anyone’s been living under a rock, 2006 Commonwealth champion Chloe Sims has returned. And she doesn’t look half bad!
AA total of 54 something. That’s quite competitive. Might’ve been a top 10 performance at Euros, in an admittedly fairly depleted field. But Australia could certainly use her.
Mostly though, I posted this to discuss Australia’s 2005-8 team, and how good they should’ve been in Beijing. There was some amazing talent there. Also, the 5 person format came too late for them. A team of Sims, Russo, Joura, Mitchell and Dykes would kill in that format.
I really have far too much to say about the total waste of talent Down Under that quad. And pure bad luck.
What might have been…
