Recently, changes were made to the qualifications for the London Paralympics 2012 for boccia. To put simply, the more recent a competition is to the Paralympics, the more weight it carries. Hence, excellent performance at the World Cup is a must to guarantee a slot in the Paralympics.
We’ve recently increased training sessions to include 2-hr trainings on 2 weekdays and 8-hr trainings on Saturdays. I wished I could train more, but this is already quite draining considering that I still have a full time job. With that in mind, I have to value each training minute – I set a goal to train a specific skill at the beginning of each session and make sure that I master that skill sufficiently by the end of the session. Due to time constraints, I don’t have the luxury of time to revisit those skills before the World Cup.
