For anybody who doesn't know about my previous post, heres the link: http://www.sherdog.net/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=59940&perpage=20&pagenumber=1 Anyway, my daughter was in another tournament today and she did GREAT! It was quite a drive to the event so my daughter had to battle a bit of car sickness when we arrived. But she quickly overcame that and went on to win 1st place in the forms part of the meet! Keep in mind there were 5 other cities being represented at the tounament too. Then came time for the sparring. She easily defeated her first opponent and moved on to the finals. She ended up facing her best friend in the finals,and because of that, she was kind of worked up before the fight. So I pulled her aside and told her that they were both friends before the fight, and they would be after as well. But when the fight starts, she was to go for the win. So the fight started win my daughter dominating the first 1/2 of it. Problem was, she was gased and was on the defensive for the 2nd 1/2. But I was still sure she had won. Imagine my heartbreak when the judge pointed at the other girl. But my little girl was still happy for her friend and even hugged her after the match. So she went away happy with 2 BIG trophies for our mantle. Even when she was icing down her right thigh after an acciedental low shot during the sparring, she was smiling, looking at her trophies.
