Final Day of Individual Competition

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.
