Good morning everyone! This past weekend I competed in the summer NY Open: I don’t talk a lot about the tournaments I compete in (other than Pans) but it was kind of important, mainly because it’s the first time I’ve competed since I injured myself during, and right after Pans. It was a long, unbearably hot day (like no joke, apparently one competitor passed out from the heat) but it went pretty quickly.
Well, anyway, my teammates fought hard, had some awesome sweeps and great takedowns, and a number of us received medals. I had one competitor in my weight division, lost on points, registered for the open (since I was still able to qualify) fought one other girl and the girl from my division, won both fights and received gold for the absolute. Hooray!
If they gave awards for being the shortest competitor, I totally would have won that as well.
Overall it was a hot, but pretty great day. Anyone else compete this weekend? Let me know- otherwise, have a great day everyone!
