Going into the US World Trials I was stressed. I haven’t been showing good scores in practice so my confidence was a little low. Still I practiced as hard as I could and I worked on staying positive. My priority was the World Trials because it was also the USA team qualifier for the World Championships team. The trials was an 8 day event followed immediately by the 2019 Arizona Cup. So it’s a pretty stressful and 11 days. I had to give it my all for 8 days then rest up for another 2 days of competition.
All this, in Arizona. In April. Just when the wind and the heat combine for the most uncomfortable environments. Stay Positive. I got this.
The first day in the world trials was tough. I didn’t shot good but I did concentrate on my shots. I keep telling myself that I’ve done this many times and I can do it again.
The next day got better. Day three got even better.
Day four, exhaustion.
I keep I’m telling myself to shoot one shot at a time, one arrow the time. Don’t forget the shot process. stay positive you can do this! After eight exhausting days, I finished 3rd! this is my 10th outdoor world championships in my career.
Mission accomplished step one!
