All Praise and Glory be unto GOD! WOW! And what awesome inspiration we have been having leading up to this Gold medal FINALs match! Before the Italy match two femal athletescame over to our table during lunch just to wish us luck. I thanked them then asked their name and sport and how they finished. They were rowers whom had won the Gold the day before. So I went on to ask if by chance they had it with them and if I could see it. They did and of course seeing it wasn’t enough so I asked if I could hold it. Boy did holding it and wearing it for those breif seconds send chills throughout my body and each of my teammates who held it too. We went on to beat Italy….
Before the Cuba match we had practice scheduled as usual but it just so happened that the Women’s Basketball Team (three time Olympic Gold Medalist) and the Women’s Soccer Team Gold medalist were in the gym. Goof around playing volleyball then took a group photo. What inspiration! We went on the beat Cuba.
Now going into the finals we have our eyes set on winning our own. We will play Brazil who is ranked number one and who has not lost a set. They are the team standing in our way of bring home the Gold! We are very familiar with this team as they are with us which should make for an awesome finals match.
Stay tuned “amazing awaits”
Blessing to ya!
