I saw an add in Facebook about a competition in Rio, short after I signed up for it, because I wanted to compete her in Rio. First obstacle, I could not pay when I signed up and because of my lack of any Portuguese I had no plan about the payment I just read something about bank. That is why I asked someone in the Gym, he told me I can pay it at a shop in Copacabana but it has to be today. I went there and paid my fee, so I was listed in the athletes list of the competition.
So far so good. I checked my weight on a scale in a pharmacy and it looked fine. We went there, I changed, I stepped on their scale, was 1 kilo to heavy and I was like: What the fuck, I was never that heavy in my life how could that happen. Could not loss 1 kilo in this time, a friend of me speak with the head organiser, they let me do a friendly fight against another competitor. At least I had at least a fight, but still I was pretty upset about myself, never happened to me before that I could not make weight.
Anyway my fight was okay, lost by 2 points because when I pulled guard in the last 15 seconds he kicked my leg. Obvious not my tournament at all but you learn always something if you step on the mats or this time if you step on the scale.
Now back to training and improving for the next one.
