This blog post is dedicated to Pat and Danny Hozack:

Phew, those are long days. In the morning we had team fighting, two Canadian teams against one English team. I was with my Team Douvris mamas Martina Couture and Anna Bélanger and we took silver while the other Canadian team took gold. 

Then in the afternoon it was time for the kata finals. I finished fourth (i.e. no medal) in the 35 and older division but second (i.e. silver) in the 42 and older division, which made me happy. 

I just realized last night that this is my 10th tournament and I'm coming home with three medals after competing against the world's best. The Guinness will taste good tonight.
