Countless hours of training, sacrifices, and unwavering dedication were poured into each match. But sometimes, despite our best intentions and efforts, the results do not reflect our aspirations. However, it is in these moments of defeat that true character is revealed.
We will not let this setback define us, nor will we wallow in self-pity.Our commitment to the sport and our unwavering spirit remain unyielding.
