FAILURE…stinking, miserable, smells like shame failure….
This is a video of me missing my 3rd Snatch at the weekend competition and being eliminated.
It was my first ever competition and as I found out the margins for
error are tiny.
So what does one do when we fall on our faces?
I’ve since learnt that there are only ever 3 reasons for bombing out in a lifting competition..
1. Opening too heavy
2. Opening too heavy
3. Opening too heavy
OK lesson learnt.
I underestimated how much the atmosphere would affect my performance.
I will compete in more competitions….
Finally I’m not going to sit here and spout cliche’s about coming back stronger but what I will say is this:
I HAVE NO PLANS TO GIVE UP JUST YET 😉
Here’s to my epic failure so you don’t have to!
