The Olympic Trials by Michael Landers
The Olympic Trials are just a couple days away. This is what I’ve been training for since I began playing table tennis and can honestly say that I don’t have any regrets up to this day about the lifestyle that I’ve chosen to live for the past few years.
While I was in California for a month training, I stuck to a strict schedule. All I did during the day was go to the gym, eat, play table tennis and sleep. Being away from my family and friends helped me focus on what I went there to do and that helped me enormously. I’m happy to say that I will be going in to the trials knowing that I’ve prepared as much as possible and will be at my best. I’m heading down to North Carolina today to warm up. I will begin playing the trials on Friday. Hopefully, I’ll make the team. But If I don’t, I am glad that I will be able to say that I gave it my best.
Wish me luck!
