I have been a member of the junior Australian program since 2012. I was lucky enough to be a member of the Australian Junior National Team who took Gold at the 2012 Oceania IHF Trophy and went on to compete at the 2013 IHF Challenge Trophy in Mexico.
In 2014 I moved to Idrætsskolerne, Ikast in Denmark to train. After my time in Denmark, I returned home to join the local competition as well as the Handball League Australia. Most recently I played for UTS Handball Club where we claimed Silver at the Australia and Oceania Club Championships. At this competition, I was awarded the title of Best Pivot. At the National Championships, I won Top Goal Scorer and helped ACT to achieve bronze.
This will be my first tournament on the open Men's International stage and I hope to reduce some of the costs associated with accommodation and travel as it is a self-funded tour. Success at the Asian Handball Championships will hopefully qualify Australia for further international events and grow our underfunded sport here in Australia! This cost has been a significant one for myself and a number of other players on the team who are balancing training, full-time uni, and work.
I will be flying out to the Asian Handball Championship in South Korea on Friday the 12th January 2018.
Good luck mate!
