Kayla is Coming Home with 1 Gold and 2 Silver Medals
The arena was crazy loud for the Team Events! Everyone wanted their country to do well and it was very exciting. I was actually more nervous for these events than the individual ones. I didn’t want to let my teammates down. My first event was for sparring and we were against New Zealand. I have to admit I was very surprised and impressed with the whole NZ team. They were strong in every division and event.
I was really happy with my sparring in the team event and relieved that I won my fight. It’s fun for me to spar different weight divisions since you have to adjust your technique and style a bit. I really enjoyed that part. Even though I’m a hyper-weight I am very fast and it surprises my opponents. Unfortunately as a team we lost our round. New Zealand ended up winning the gold in the end for this event so at least we know we got to compete against the best.
