A YOGtastic week!
It has been a week of successes for YOG Ambassadors and athletes this week, rounding up a fantastic end to 2014. It all began on Saturday in Lake Louise, Canada, when Lindsey Vonn won her first race on the FIS World Cup circuit in nearly two years - her first since coming back from injury this year. Lindsey won the downhill event in style, securing an emphatic comeback to the ski season!
The YOG Ambassadors’ success did not stop there, as, on Sunday night at the FINA swimming world championships in Doha, South African swimming sensation Chad Le Clos won a record four gold medals. He made history by winning the 50m, 100m and 200m butterfly events, adding to the 200m freestyle win earlier in the day. Way to go, Chad!
Singapore 2010 and London 2012 taekwondo gold medallist Jade Jones MBE was crowned World Taekwondo Federation grand prix champion in Queretaro, Mexico. Another incredible achievement for the 21-year-old, whose list of accolades grows ever more impressive by the year.
Over in Whistler, Canada, at the Luge Junior World Cup, Alex Ferlazzo became the first ever athlete from Australia to win an International Luge Federation (FIL) race. Alex also competed at both Innsbruck 2012 and Sochi 2014.
Huge congratulations to Chad, Lindsey, Jade and Alex!
