Going into World Indoor I wasn’t really nervous because of the age group I was competing against. I was shooting as a Junior and I am 13, that’s just crazy, right? I had a great time because I got to see old friends and meet new ones.
I got really upset in the beginning because I shot two misses in the first 30 arrows, which had not happened in practice. I slowly redeemed myself through the tournament and went up through the rankings. I still was able to squeeze out a 978 and came in 10th out of 13. I wasn’t happy with it but my parents reminded me it was the first time I attempted trials and I am 13. I didn’t get to go forward because they only took the top 8 and if I had shot as a Senior, my score would have gotten me to the second day. Bummer. But who thinks of shooting up that high?
Overall I had a good time, got to see some of my favorite coaches and met some new ones. Maybe some of you guys will shoot with me next year?
