Gulgong's Michelle Bromley has qualified for the Tokyo Olympic Games and will be nominated to represent Australia in table tennis.
Achieving top ranking in a gruelling three-day qualification event, Michelle will head to Tokyo in July to battle against the world's best table tennis players for gold on the world stage.
Speaking the morning after her victory, Bromley was still almost lost for words.
"I'm still on cloud nine and can't believe it's real yet," she laughed.

The qualification event pits Australia's best table tennis players against each other to compete for a top two position and a spot on the Australian team - pending approval by the Australian Olympic Committee.
Bromley's impressive run saw her win eight of nine matches and earned her the top ranking, losing only one match on the second day.
"I went into the tournament seeded fourth and so I was pretty happy with the lineup I had across the three days," she said.
"I played, for the most part, the easier matches through to the most hard matches on the final day. It allowed me to ease my nerves and my mind. So by day three I was ready to fire.
"Playing a number two seed...followed by the number one seed...which I've only ever beaten once throughout my table tennis career. To be able to pull that off at such a crucial time was pretty epic."
Bromley works a day job from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday and trains three hours a night, six days a week. Eighty per cent of the training is on court and the rest of the time is spent at the gym.
Bromely added the strong support she had during the qualification process got her across the line after failing to qualify for the Olympics on three previous occasions.
"I had a bit of a family support crew down here, with my brother, sister-in-law, aunty, cousin my husband and my mum and they were all absolutely ecstatic," she said.
"They've seen all the ups and downs of my sporting career to date so it's been really great to be able to share this amazing experience with all of them, and just to have them down here at such an important event and will me over the line was amazing."
It's been Bromely's dream to represent her country in the Olympics, something which led her to make the move to Sydney when she was 18, but there will still be a lot of nerves when the moment arrives.
"One thousand per cent there will be nerves. I'm definitely the type of person to say 'chuck me on the back court with no one watching'. It'll be a totally foreign environment for me playing in such a huge event but I'll be doing a lot of mental prep just to make sure I'm in the right mindset to bring my best for the games," she said.
