Asia Pacific OutGames 2008, World Out Games 2009

Hey, just wondering if anyone else on the board played the Asia Pacific Out Games, in Melbourne last weekend at Melbourne Park?

Awesome venue for the tournament, just one week after the Australian Open. Was pretty hot weather, I cramped up big time, had to call for the trainer but managed to win a Bronze medal in the Open Division which was exciting.

Anyhow, I'm planning on going to Copenhagen in July 2009 representing Australia of course, should be awesome, anyone on here planning the trip as well?

Copenhagen will be a lot tougher, they are expecting 10,000+ athletes, which is the equivalent to the size of the Olympics. The one in Montreal 2 years ago was bigger than the Olympics with 16,000 athletes and more countries represented!

would the Australian organiser pay for your trip? since you have won the bronze medal? or you have to pay yourself?

Would have some sponsorship, but most of the costs would be self funded
