THE OLYMPIC Games now means so much more to Coffs Coast sports fans with Emma Moffatt securing her ticket to Rio.

The former Emerald Beach triathlete booked a seat on the jet to Rio de Janeiro after a seventh-place finish at her hometown race at the WTS Gold Coast on Saturday.

The 2008 Beijing bronze medallist has also created history as the only female Australian triathlete to attain a third Olympic spot.

She will do so with partner Daniel Bowker who booked his ticket as part of the formidable Australian Kayak team.

In the Coffs Coast Advocate this Wednesday, Moffatt describes her feelings after the long months of chasing her dream of a third Olympics appearance.
