The tournament was held at Diablo Valley College. The tourni had over 800 contestants plus all the coaches and "support" aka parents crammed into this ever so small/old gym. It was hot, smelly, very disorganized and a long day. I heard the medics called 4 times all to black belt rings, one girl was taken off to the hospital due to a head kick.
After getting up at 4am then heading to Gilroy to meet the rest of the team at 5:30am we made it home at a little after 11pm. Josh, Lilie and I had no nap! Ava got up at 8am and went down at 9:30pm with only three 30min naps! Josh didn't fight until 8pm. Then they shortened his fight to two one and half minute rounds. All I can say was what a long freaking day!!! Unfortunately the forces of the long day, sinus infection and not feeling ready/prepared but already putting in the entry fee got the best of Josh. He took third place but got second because they ran out of third place metals.
