  1. Whoa... I'm back! Sorry for being inactive for about 2 1/2 months I was super busy with work (seasonal job so not working anymore), college application, and school but now I've finally got enough room in my schedule to start posting again. The posts should resume soon just need to start updating my worksheets again.
  2. Dang, I was only 6 months old it's crazy some kids were not even born when it happened but then I have to think I didn't remember it when I was 6 months old.

Sailing (Laser, 470 Men, Laser Radical) How Did They Qualify? 2018 Sailing World Championship Background... Compared to Rio 2016 we are a tiny bit behind on the qualification as in the 2014 Sailing World Championships we were able to also qualify a Women's 470 and Finn Class. I still believe by the end of the qualification we will be able to fill up the quotas and bring the maximum amount of athletes. What Does Our USA Tokyo 2020 Olympic Team Look Like?

How does this help us qualify for the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics? In order to qualify we must win this Championship or become runner up if Japan wins. 2018 Women's Softball World Championship USA 7 - 6 Japan Going into this match it didn't really matter if we won or lost as just being in the gold medal match vs Japan means we have qualified for the Olympics! In front of 12,000 fans at ZOZO Marine Stadium it was Kelsey Stewart with a walk off single who won us the game 7-6 and keeping our undefeated streak at the 2018 Softball World Championship alive. The match was close all the way through and it will be interesting to see this rivalry develop in Tokyo. Results:

Road to Tokyo 2020 United States August 15th, 2018 Softball 2018 Women's Softball World Championship USA 4 - 3 Japan Chiba, Japan - Semifinals | August 12th For more information on this game and how it ties to qualification look below. How does this help us qualify for the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics? In order to qualify we must win this Championship or become runner up if Japan wins. 2018 Women's Softball World Championship USA 4 - 3 Japan By far playing against Japan will be our toughest match up yet because they are the 2nd best ranked team in the world after us. To start the first inning in this rivalry match up Japan led off with a single start, Monica Abbott was able to get back-to-back strikeouts before Japan took the lead early, 2-0. In the top of the second Japan almost increased their lead even more but we continued to hold them off 2-0. In the top of the third Japan started leading 3-0 but in the bottom we were able to get 2 points for a closer match of 3-2. We kept Japan off for the rest of the match as we scored 2 more points winning 4-3. With this win it brings us straight to the medal match to play either Japan, Canada, or Australia. Results:

    The flight was good very long (13 hours in total for both my flights). I love the city so far, I was expecting it to be much smaller than it is, I haven't been to Vienna yet so I'm sure when I go there I'll realize Bratislava is much smaller. But I love the different styles of architecture it's cool to see the different "phases" the city has gone through.

    I really wish I'd be able to but the trip is me just tagging along with my mom who is going for work so I've kinda got to stay in Bratislava during the week, If I knew Slovak I would definitely take the train to these places cause they look stunning!

How does this help us qualify for the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics? In order to qualify we must win this Championship or become runner up if Japan wins. 2018 Women's Softball World Championship USA 8 - 1 Puerto Rico Woohoo! With an 8-1 win over Puerto Rico we solidify 1st place in Group A and will play the loser of the Japan vs Australia match (hoping it's Australia). I was surprised with the result of this match I thought it would be a lot closer. The game had an outstanding performance by Monica Abbott, who was nearly flawless striking 11 in the 5 innings to help us win. In the playoffs we will have a double life so if we loose versus Japan/Australia we still have another shot to make it to the Medal Round. Group Results: Pictures:
