No character assassination here at all, no suggestion that she has done anything other than totally worked herself as hard on her fitness and skills as anyone could to make the team, that she has entered into the team as a supportive and positive ego-less person who gives total support to her team mates,to the coach and to all the support staff, and that she IS representing Australia as a fine example of a fully dedicated Olympic athlete.
She has accepted that she has been selected, ( as we all would in her place) , that she listens and does exactly what the coaching staff asks of her, and puts everything on the line to to the best job she can when she is TOLD to go on the court and compete.
i don't know her but I'd put my house on it that she has never asked for any favours, nor given any in return, from any of the coaches or other players.
Well done to her.
the criticism in this forum that I'm reading, both professional and personal, is all on the coach.
i hope the girls win gold, and if they do they ALL deserve it. They will have carried the coach there, rather than the coach assisting them.
