TRAINING: Again I have mixed it up in my training. With me fighting in Brazil I need to be prepared for a hostile reception. I have tried to provoke as many people as possible in the last month to prepare my mind for being disliked. I have been studying the performances of Team GB at the 2012 Olympics in London for inspiration. Of course, this is only half of my challenge. I have to get myself in top physical condition. Many an hour spent doing water aerobics, and explosive power work with the Taiwan Bobsled Team.
