Tokyo Diary | Day 6

Opening ceremony day

Wow, what a feeling walking into that stadium !! No matter what happens during the games I know that I have already achieved my biggest dream by just being here, and now I can just try to calm the nerves, play my heart out and have fun.

I can definitely confess that no matter how big your dreams are and how long it takes you to achieve them it will always come true if you are determined and focused. During these 7 years I was not focused and determined every single day because we are human and we do get tired to fight the big fight that’s why I surround myself with a team who will pick me up during those days and remind me why I started in the first place, so as big as this achievement is for me I want to give the biggest shoutout to my team for getting me here onto the biggest stage in the world.
