anyway, he got a bronze medal after losing in the semi-finals to a black belt. score was a very tight 2-1. worth-reading an old post i wrote about losing:
the highlight of the day was the little big man's cousin -- my brother's son. it was his first time to compete. he trained for a week and his dad convinced him to try out this competition. his was just an exhibition game, with our coach making sure he doesn't get traumatized on his very first game. well, he lost but got himself a silver medal for trying. he needs a lot of training and i hope he and his dad seriously get into this.
the hubby came to the event and the kids were mighty glad to see him. although the little girl started crying when he was about to leave again later in the afternoon. things are tough but i know in my heart we will all be able to cope.
