Selina Gilesenen's Tribute to Coach Dick Caine

Hi Dick, long time no see. So excited when I saw the post on Mateo’s achievement and realised l could contact you. I heard through Ken and Tima that you haven’t been well and I would love to visit you, as I am sure this is a tough time for you and your family.

I’m living in NZ, with my husband and 4 boys, but I try tro come back most holidays to visit family and friends. If you are‘happy for me to come visit, I’ll contact you next time I’m in Sydney.

Before I go I wanted to let you know what a strong influence you had in my life. My memories of early mornings, a cold pool, tears in my goggles, discipline and tough love should be something I want to forget, but I have benefited from every aspect of the time I spent training with you. You gave me the strength I needed, both physically and mentally, to deal; with the highs and lows of life. I can’t thank you enough for everything you have done for me and hope lcan see you to tell you in person.
