A Cycling Australia edict for a three-year plan for the Tokyo Olympic Games (TOG) pushed Chloe Hosking the Canberra cyclist, to gold on the Gold Coast. Now, Hosking wants to ensure that she doesn’t go back-step from here” and carries the move till Japan.
Hosking, not only win the road race of women of the last week held Commonwealth Games, but she won the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race (CEGORR), along with a stage of the Tour Down for Women under and the jersey of sprinting at the Women’s Herald Sun Tour. After all this win, Hosking is now aiming for Japan and has figures crossed. When asked about her preparation for the Olympics, she said “The thing that motivated me really is to take a step back and reassess entire things.”
Now, I am identifying my weaknesses and then I will work out for them. I will assess how I am going to make weaknesses less weak or turn them into my strengths. Something I have struggled with during my career is my body composition. I think many female athletes have been facing the same issue. So I find out it is not working for me doing it by myself and thus, I need help in this department. I went out and someone recommended me Canberra nutritionist Harriet Walker. I talked to her and now, we have been working together very closely since November.”
“She has a huge credit behind my gold and I have to forward lots of thanks to her for the gold medal.”
