Team Ribble sponsored triathlete Ailbhe Carroll is aiming to be selected by Ireland for the 2020 Olympic Games and you’ll be able to follow her progress here.
My journey to gain Olympic selection for the Tokyo 2020 Games starts this season. I look forward to being able to share my experiences during my preparation with you. If you haven’t seen my previous blog posts for Ribble then I’ll introduce myself.
Who am I? I’m Ailbhe Carroll.
Nationality: Irish. D/O/B: 13/07/91.
What are my dreams? To be the best athlete I can.
How do I plan to make my dreams come true? Train relentlessly and qualify for the 2020 Olympic Games.
Why? Because if life isn’t a challenge and doesn’t excite you then why bother.
What’s next for me in 2018? I’m heading back home for a Irish national aquathon champs in the middle of May. After that I travel to Poland to race a European Cup triathlon so it’s an exciting few weeks as the season really gets going.
My short-term objectives? To always improve on my last outing. To gain vital ITU ranking points and to come away happy and hungry for more.
Keep up to date with my personal journey of trying my best to qualify for Tokyo 2020 over the next 2 years. It’s sure to have highs. It’s sure to have lows, so stay tuned!
See you soon,
