Writing

Last month, I had a special experience. It is the first time I take part in a competition about sports. I’ve just trained fencing for four, but my competors have trained fencing for two or three years. And also they have a lot of experience. I had 5 games in this competition. In the fifth game, my competor is good at evading. I couldn’t touch him, so I lost the game. Even I lost the game, I felt happy and exciting. It is a event that encourage me to train harder on fencing.
