I won my Wrestle offs!!!! I am an Olympic team member. HURRAY!!! Winning this event is a huge relief. I am so excited for what is still to come!
I still have more challenges ahead. By winning today I am the Canadian at 53kgs that could represent Canada in the Olympics. I now need to qualify Canada. The next Olympic qualification tournament is Pan Ams March 5th in Dallas, Texas. If I place top two at this tournament, I will be on my way to Rio. If I do not place top two at Pan Ams, I will have two other Olympic qualification tournaments I can go to. Mongolia April 23 and Turkey May 7. The best-case scenario is I win Pan Ams and do not have to go to Mongolia or Turkey.
I am just so excited right now. I am ready to kick butt and make my Olympic dreams come true.
