Favorite Sports Memory:
I was once in the Finals of a World Cup tournament, competing against the home team no less. My competitor was undefeated in the tournament so far having beat the current world champion (not to mention she was a world champion herself). It seemed I had every odd against me but I knew I still had a match to compete. I went out and took the first take-down so I wasn’t surprised when she tried to stop me and threw my body in the air. I learned that I apparently have break dancing skills as I rotated and spun my entire body on my head in order to land directly on top of the world champion and pin her for the victory!
