2011 Australian Masters Games Gold Medallist

Two years in the making (the games are only held every odd numbered year), this victory is particularly sweet… Undefeated throughout the competition, I didn’t even give up a single game, this year was my year.

First the celebration, then the explanation how I made it happen…

  • Congratulations, Marc !

  • Marc……..

    Congratulations……… It was only a matter of time – time spent planning drills and training sessions, time focusing on executing the drills and training sessions, time traveling to precursor comps in preparation and build up to this tournament.

    Enjoy the time now having won in convincing fashion – it is deserved.

    P.S. Don’t forget all the time playing socially as well – it all added up!

    See you on court soon;


  • What a fantastic outcome Marc. Congratulations and well deserved. You exemplify the benefits of focus, perseverence and doing it smarter like noone else I know.

  • Hi Marc,
    I too have had a big shift and it has to do with the 1% ers, my sport is indoor & outdoor rowing, I fine tuned what I was doing since 2009 World Masters Games in Sydney, where I paired up with Analese Gerling & won 1 Gold medal in the Mixed B age division (35-43) Double sculls.

    This masters games in Adelaide I decided to enter the indoor ergo competition which was run on wed & thursday, from that I gained a silver in the 500 metre event and Gold in the 1,000 & Gold in the 2,000 metre events for age 50-55. I am now 50. Over the next 3 days of competition on the water I rowed in 20 races 3 were heats, the rest were finals. I came home with 13 Gold Medals and 3 Silver. So I found out it is possible to go all out, 3 of my races were won by less than .4 of a second.

    Would love to talk to you sometime.

    All the best,

  • Wow – that’s amazing. If you’re that competitive, you’ll want to get yourself a copy of The Masters Athlete book written by Dr Peter Reaburn of Queensland who is also an elite Masters Athlete.

    16 Medals – you and swimmers sure have the advantage to win multiple medals with all those events!

    Onward and upward!
