‘My Commonwealth Games Selection’ by Ryan Bailie
April 17 2014

Five years ago I left Bunbury in Western Australia as a young 18 year old. I was chasing a dream to become a professional Triathlete, and left with pretty much the clothes on my back, my bike and a few dollars in my bank account!

I had been given an opportunity to train under Jamie Turner in Wollongong NSW, which I grabbed with both hands, making the most of any opportunity and absorbing any bit of info like a sponge.

Times have been tough along the way and set backs have occurred. Like with any sporting career, it has been these though times that have only made me stronger in the long run, and any bit of success all that little bit sweeter.

Fast forward to 2012. After years of hard work and commitment I made my first Australian under 23 Worlds team. While it was a long time coming, I never lost sight of my goals.

A year later I was granted selection as an Elite representative and it felt like everything was paying off and heading in the right direction.

As a kid we all have dreams to go to the Olympics and Commonwealth Games, and I was no different.

I received a phone call yesterday, which confirmed my selection for the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow later this year.

I’ve had little time to process what has happened and it all still feels like a dream.

It just goes to show that dreams do sometimes come true with a lot of hard work and belief.

What an honour and accomplishment it will be to wear the green and gold in Glasgow!

I can’t wait.

Cheers,
Ryan
