Thanks to all the other RHI athletes, friends and the RHI Sports Program for your amazing support this year.
This past September I earned the opportunity to compete for a slot to represent the USA in the 2012 Paralympics. I will be competing in a trials event in April to see who gets that slot. Of course, I have lots of training to do between now and then to make sure I earn my way to the 2012 Paralympics in August.
Meanwhile, I have competed in the 2011 Parapan Am Games in Guadalajara, Mexico. I was ranked third going into eliminations and had a tough match where it came down to a single arrow shoot off at 70 meters. I shot a solid ten but my opponent also shot a ten and was closer to center by a 1/4 inch so I was unable to make it to the medal matches.
I did gain more experience in high pressure situations which is always valuable, especially as I look ahead to the USA trials event in April for the Paralympic games in London. I look forward to the upcoming competitions, and thank you all again for your support!
