It was a windy and raw day at Lindley park right in downtown. But it was a heart warming sight to see Sadie coming back into form. Today I began to see the SUPER SADIE again.br /br /It was clear to me while spending time talking and training with Sadie yesterday that she has her game on again and was ready to fight it out today.br /br /The qualifying time trial was held at 9 with Sadie going out 11th. She looked very smooth and relaxed and ended up 8th fastest just under 4 seconds back of Caitlin Compton who lead by 1.5 seconds.br /br /The heats got underway at noon with Sadie’s quarter final running at 12:20. She had tough competition all the way through with Laura Valaas in each of her heats.br /Sadie lead from the gun in each heat taking a commanding lead by the time she exited the stadium. She was able lead the entire quarter final only being challenged by Valaas on the last short steep hill into the stadium where Sadie’s superior speed came into play.br /br /In the semi final she once again took an early lead but three women slipped past her by the half way point. Once again, however, she out sprinted them in the last 200 meters. This included the eventual race winner Holly Brooks. So, this advanced her into the A final.br /br /The final heat looked like it might be a replay as Sadie stormed out of the stadium in the lead. Holly made her move after about 400meters and Sadie could not respond. Skiing from the front in the other heats had cost her too much energy and she dropped to 6th place. All day long I had seen the fire that has made Sadie the champion that she is but this last heat is where I really saw the grit that shows what she is made of. On the last hill leading into the stadium she poured on that amazing sprint; jump skating past Valaas into 5th place.br /br /While it is clear that Sadie is not fully back into form yet the change from last weekend is remarkable and this result is a validation of the benefits of our speed training all summer.div class=”blogger-post-footer”img width=’1′ height=’1′ src=’https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/2910103639238326543-5903194457576730279?l=methowolympicdevelopment.blogspot.com’ alt=” //div
