Happy Father's Day, Post-Antalya, and 1.5 Weeks

Happy Father's Day, 아빠! I love you very very very much and I can't wait to see you again.
Thanks for always supporting me in everything I do. I wouldn't be here right now if it wasn't for you. 사랑해요~!

I'm very happy with my accomplishments. I never imagined I would shoot personal bests at such a big international tournament. Considering the windy weather and my nervousness, I think I performed very well. BUT..... Antalya really opened my eyes to how I stand compared to the rest of the world. If I want to become a real international competitor, I need to start comparing myself to real, tough competition and set higher goals for myself.

I have only 1.5 weeks left here in Korea so training is full throttle right now. I'm heading to Daejeon in a couple of hours where I'll be training with the Korean national team being sent to the Universiade. It's going to be a very valuable experience, no doubt. Luckily, my friend 혜진언니 made the team so I'll be training along side a familiar face.

I'll be back some time during the middle of this week so I'll see you then! =)

Love always,

Antalya 2009 - Part 3

The third and final part of Antalya 2009!!!!!!!!

I can't tell you enough how great of an experience this tournament was for me.
I'll have to get into more detail another time and just let the videos do the explaining for now.

I'm off to Won-ju for the third Korean national tournament this year. Unfortunately, things didn't work out and I won't be competing but I'll be bringing my bow along to practice.

Okay see you soon!

Antalya 2009 - Part 1

Here's my first video from the 3rd stage of World Cup in Antalya.

I had the greatest time of my life in Antalya and can't wait for my next international tournament.
I shot well during the ranking rounds... put up a good score by Canadian standards but placed 44th. That just shows how much stronger the female recurves in Canada need to get in order to become serious competitiors internationally.

I met SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO many people at this tournament and had a wonderful time getting to know everyone.

See you tomorrow with another one! =)
