Story from F.J, NSW
I represented Australia in plumbing in the recent Skills Olympics in Taiwan. My goal was to win a Gold Medal. I did heaps of practice and constantly used Sandy's tape to prepare myself mentally. The competition is over 4 long days and my major disadvantage was to work with unfamiliar pipe sizes and a pipe bending machine (ones I had never used before but with which competitors from the Asian countries were familiar). I got the BRONZE Medal (only missing out on Gold by less than 1%), and got the GOLD medal for the highest points of any Australian competing throughout the 35 trades.
