But she believes that it is her commitment and determination in wanting to win that is her best attribute. “It’s my competitiveness, I hate to lose,” Beck said.Although Beck is not currently a part of the Australian Team to compete in the World Cup in South Africa next year, she is aiming to be a part of the following World Cup and will continue to strive for that goal. “I am just looking to keep learning and improving and hopefully in the future make the team,” Beck said. Beck’s message for the 750 athletes competing here this week who are looking to further their Touch career, is “keep going, set your goals high and keep your head up.”“I live by the motto: shoot for the moon because even if you miss at least you’ll land among the stars.”Influencing Beck’s Touch style is playing with and learning from players like Rachel Holden, and coaches like Tracey Bills. “I have been coached by Tracey Bills for about seven years and I have learnt a lot from her, actually almost everything,” Beck said.Beck’s NSWCHS team is now into the grand final against QSST and is hoping to repeat last year’s efforts, taking the title of under 18’s National Champions.last_img read more

first_imgAbout the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say Man Utd legend Neville: Contract will help De Gea settleby Freddie Taylora month agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United legend Gary Neville says a new contract could see David De Gea return to form.The Spaniard hasn’t been himself this season, but Neville says a new deal until 2023 could settle the 28-year-old.Neville told Sky Sports: “De Gea has had a difficult time in the Premier League and he’s had difficulties at home where he’s lost his place in the national team. I don’t think he’s fully recovered from the poor World Cup in 2018, and he’s made more mistakes in the last 15 months than ever before.”But I’ve got to believe that this is good news and hope that what’s happened in the last 12 to 15 months has been a result of the ongoing speculation. The hope is that now he’s signed, he can settle down and start performing.”United need a spine. They had eight academy players in the squad on Saturday, but their problem isn’t the academy. The problem is that they haven’t got a strong, dominant spine, but De Gea can be the start of that.” last_img read more
