Sinéad Diver is en route to Beijing and watching the World Championships from her hotel in Japan. She says “Thanks so much! I was blown away when I saw the sign. It was so lovely of the club to organise. Please pass on my thanks to everyone”. Sinéad adds that the weather in Japan is similar to Beijing so will be a help with acclimatisation somewhat.
