EO Week - Tuesday

Later today Karen & I are travelling down to Kent ready to meet the coach tomorrow morning to travel to Belgium. Time has flown past since our Team Day back in May, so much has been done in preparation for this event.

The team are all looking good and working very well. At Weardale Championship show all three heights CC's were won by Agility Team GB members (Rosie, Natasha and Charlotte) This is good physical and mental preparation.

Behind the scenes the Support Team have also been working hard helping the team to prepare. This is an area I have been focusing on a lot too as I believe these people play an essential role in the lead up. I've asked each of the support team to prepare a few words for the team as not all of them are travelling. Emma pulled together some interesting data for her update. Here's a snippet for you:

" (team) have already accounted for more than half of the credits applied for next year’s team selection. As a team, you have completed over 72 rounds at FCI World Championships in the last 6 years and have over 300 years experience...."

It's this kind of additional motivational support, information and data that I believe helps create the strong team we have.

During the event Zoe (KC) will be keeping the Dog Agility Facebook page up to date with results. You can also send us messages on Twitter using the #agilityteamgb tag.
