The Medal Race

Hi, this is written by Karen – a friend of Joan’s.  I had the honour and thrill of being able to be in London to watch Joan race, and it was an exhilarating experience.  She performed incredibly well and had two personal best times, as well as making it into the Heat A Finals – which was the race for the medals.

Her original goal was to make it to the Heat A Final, and she did – with extraordinary performances.  It’s of course disappointing, she didn’t medal – but she’s sixth in the world which is a feat of enormity and one she can take great pride in.

I’ve attached some photos from the final race.
