As far as 36 hours go, it was "pretty crazy" - and that's probably an understatement.
Nulkaba shooter Dan Repacholi felt both the emotinal highs and lows last weekend when he achieved his long-held goal of qualifying for a fifth Olympic Games.
And his joy was all the sweeter because he did it the hard way, coming from dead last to qualify first after "shooting crap" at the start.
Imagine then how he was feeling 36 hours later when it was confirmed that Australia would not be sending a team to the Tokyo Olympics amid the coronavirus pandemic.
While there have been ongoing doubts about the Games going ahead, Australian made the early call to say Australia will not be represented.
"But that could still change," Repacholi said. "With the Games delayed Australia now may send a side - we're waiting to hear."
I don't think anyone knows how they're feeling. No one has been through this before, it's unknown territory.Dan Repacholi
The IOC and Tokyo 2020 announced this week that the Games will be delayed until 2021 - although they will still be referred to as the 2020 Games.
"If they went ahead as scheduled Australia was not sending a team, but now they've been delayed we're waiting to hear what Australia decides. We just don't know."
So what does that mean to the 38-year-old whose top ranking would have meant his fifth straight Olympic Games selection - following Rio De Janeiro (2016), London (2012), Beijing (2008) and Athens (2004).

The irony of all this is that after the last Olympics Repacholi was definitely retiring.
"I wasn't tired of shooting, but thought I should probably spend more time with my wife Alex and daughters Zoe and Asha," he said.
"But then when I did I think Alex realised what a pain I'd be to have around all the time, so she told me to get out and start shooting again," he laughed. "So I'll keep going now."
Amid it all, he finds it hard to put into words how he's feeling.
"I don't think anyone knows how they're feeling. No one has been through this before, it's unknown territory."
