Perko is on his way to the Commonwealth Games

What a 2 months it’s been! Since originally injuring my back it’s been a very up and down time. Some of the biggest challenges faced in my career. Still challenges to come for sure on the road to recovery!

The positive is that I’m confirmed on my way to Glasgow Commonwealth Games! I can’t wait to join my team mates and staff. It was touch and go if I was going to be able to make the trip and compete to what I would want to be nothing but my best. It was always going to be a big year with incorporating my commitments with Japanese racing contracts and preparing for Commonwealth Games.

It was made much tougher having these back injuries. 2 hospital visits, 7 injections, a couple emergency flights back from Japan to see docs! Looking forward to making Australia proud and supporting my team mates next week! Let’s get em!
