A heartening message from Tai McIsaak
February 21, 2013 4 Comments
Hi Erkin, How are you? Hope you are well and so to the family? I just wanted to send you a message to let you know how much of an influence you have had on not only my Water Polo career but also my Rugby career as well. The work ethic and commitment to training and sports in general really helped me to develop in everything I have chosen to do to this day. Your influence has also lead me too to coaching. After I retired from playing professionally I have become a coach in Japan, with the view to get back to Australia and some day coach the Wallabies. I know you may get feedback from time to time about your coaching, but I just wanted to thank you for everything you helped me to achieve both in Water Polo and Rugby. Hope we can catch up some time in the near future. Thank you again. Tai McIsaac.
In 1995, at the World championships in Dunkerque, France, the Australian Junior Men’s team reached a semi-final stage for the first time in history, narrowly missing on the Bronze medals (a detailed account will be posted soon). Playing in a very demanding centre-forward position, Tai was instrumental in achieving that result. His performance was way above expectations since his water polo experience was very limited at the time. His fighting spirit, work ethic, good-natured personality and integrity were the main components of his success. Thank you Tai! I wish you well in all your endeavours!
