Today we lost a battle but not the war. Although we lost 2 straight sets of scores (12-21, 12-21) against the Americans, it was a great learning experience.
When we put things into perspective we feel like a winner. We just competed in a GRAND SLAM!! This event includes the best of the best of beach volleyball.
Since the very beginning we have trained for a total of 1 month together. We are going into this tournament after only training for 3 weeks. Since we currently have no funding, it means we have to work during the year to be able to fund for these tournaments. This makes it hard to train all year round like most teams.
Looking forward, the plan is make Cannes our home base in January and give ‘er with training.
