This week I received my official Cartel Doosung training gear. Although I have been sponsored by Cartel Doosung for almost a year now, receiving official team gear makes me really feel like an official team member. It is an honour to be sponsored alongside Cartel Doosung’s other amazing archers; the Doosung Compound Team who recently competed in the first Asian Archery Grand Prix in Bangkok, Thailand. The Doosung Compound Team finished fourth in the ranking round and went on to captured the bronze medal narrowly defeating host country Thailand. Congratulations to my fellow team members.
Being part of the successful team inspires you to strive higher and work harder and share in their triumphs and successes. However, all athletes need to be cautious about trying too hard to prove their worth, you have to be careful not to over-strive or work beyond your capabilities. Young athletes need to remember to stick to the training program as outlined by their coaches otherwise they can suffer minor setbacks or even worse suffer a long term injury.
