Final Day of Individual Competition
March 10, 2012 1 Comment
So today started off with my final game in my pool. I defeated Gabe 9-1 to finish first in my pool with a 4-0 record and a +35 points for/against. The other pool didn’t quite go as planned, and I ended up facing my toughest competitor in the Semi final. I was down 4-0 after 3 ends, and tried my best to complete the comeback but came up short losing 4-3. I then had to run directly back to the call room for my bronze medal game. Again, I got off to a bit of a shaky start getting down 3-0 after two ends. But I pulled of 2 points in each of the final two ends to win the bronze medal 4-3. Obviously this is not medal colour I was looking for but I was happy with my overall performance and finished first among the athletes in my classification running for the National team ( which was the real goal coming in to the competition).
One more final day tomorrow with the Paralympic team selection camp. I look forward to playing well all day and finally putting an end to the selection process for the 2012 Paralympics.
I will hear about the selection late this week, and will of course let you all know how it goes. I probably won’t get a chance to blog tomorrow as we will be out celebrating.
Have a good night everyone.
