MAKING a comeback to sports after almost a decade was a huge challenge for Charlotte Taylor.
She said overcoming challenges had become a routine for her and no obstacle would prevent her from competing.
The 29-year-old will represent Fiji in sailing in the single person laser division at the Pacific Mini Games that begins in Wallis and Futuna next week.
Taylor took up the sport when she was seven years old in Savusavu under the guidance of her father Geoff Taylor. She left the country 10 years ago to study in Australia and is now making a comeback in the sport.
"After a very long time I rejoined the sport again last year and we can't say that we are 100 per cent prepared but we will try our best to win medals, it will be gold, silver or bronze.
"I started sailing in a very small boat when I was young and coming from a family of sailors, I'm preparing to deliver well."
Her father is the coach for the Savusavu sailing team and she said his guidance and the support of her family had enabled her to once again embrace the sport she loves.
"I have a kid at home and there is a lot of disruption when you have a kid and a job and there is so much to juggle around. But the support of my husband and father and family has been huge and thanks to them I am once again competing."
Taylor was farewelled with sprinter Banuve Tabakaucoro by the Digicel Fiji staff members on Tuesday.
