- We showed up confident in our ability to perform under pressure. This stemmed directly from attending NSL meets to supplement our training. We developed a comfortable competition routine and learned to relax and have fun between competition rounds.
- We trained enough to overcome all sorts of distractions: distracting peers on the airplane, camera failures, long holding patterns at altitude, and fast jump runs.
- We showed up in Eloy to have fun without taking ourselves too seriously.
The confidence in our ability to perform despite pressure and distractions really went a long way. Great team chemistry helped keep things light-hearted. You can bet I’ll be looking to reproduce the same conditions in the meets to come.
