For the fifth year running this slalom event in Hyde Park is always a more fun oriented occasion. There are always bunny ears and the exact rules are a bit flexi, especially if you’re doing something Easter/hoppy related!
This will be my third competition and all I wanted to achieve was to perform as well as I usually can, but in public.
Before the event started I had a practice on some cones and was happy with how I was doing. In fact I seem to be doing better than usual!
However, even though I didn’t feel nervous my legs still went to jelly as soon as I was called up. (Just as the other competitions). On my run I knocked lots more cones over than in my practice. My battle was with my friend Irina. The judges’ decision was tied so it went down to best trick. For some reason I chose to do a backwards one foot even though I’ve not managed a whole line of cones for ages. Needless to say Irina went through to the next round.
Just a little annoyed I got jelly legs again during my run. Looking back at the footage it wasn’t as bad as I felt at the time though.. This was fun event all the same.
