National champions!

In my highschool years we had a national championship in acrobatic dunking. With the other guys that were training with me at that time we were giving it all to win the national finals. There were a lot of good teams so we knew we have to show our best, not just our best but 110 %. Dedication to our goal - becoming champions was enormous. I was waking up early in the morning to do my first training in the gym, then went to the school and in the evening we had another training for practicing difficult combinations. In the night I was going through various scenarios and wondering wether we are going to prevail. It was a huge test for me as a person since acrobatic dunking took all my time and there was no space for anything else. Family, friends, computer games as well as other activities were sidelined. I certainly had a good reason - national trophy was just too much of a tease. 

Finally came the moment of truth. We were sharp as a knife determined to win in no matter what. I stepped on the court knowing this is the moment. With the team backing up my every action we rocked the court, making it done like bosses. With my eyes shut I went into the half concious state where I heard the crowd in a slow motion style shouting and clapping. Tap on my back brought me back into reality. The trophy was in front of me shining bright in the sportlight of the victorious golden reflectors. I cried.
