Basketball is my life
I saw my future basketball trainer when I was 9. He came to invite girls to a basketball team. He was a man of middle height with very kind eyes. He said that he would be glad to see all comers. My friend and I decided to try…
Soon I understood that basketball is my way of life. My trainer did everything so that we had more practice with our rivals. We often went to another town of our region to play basketball. The results were sometimes the best and sometimes the worst. They say, to learn by experience is experience itself. We didn’t give up.
Time went on, we grew up, our behavior and views changed but our love to basketball did not change. Our trainer taught us to make up our minds when the event was hard or not, to believe in ourselves. That was printed on my mind forever.
When we were 13 we had a chance to take part in the Regional basketball competition. We were happy because we won!!! We understood that each jump, each feint, each combination, each ball led us to that victory!
Nowadays I can’t imagine my life without basketball. It is life the second wind for me. Basketball inspires me to further development and victories. When I’m exhausted I always remember that I am a member of the team. My team trusts me and waits that I will fight till the last whistle.
My credo can be presented by the word of the famous basketball player Kevin Garnett: “We have to do the impossible, but it is possible. Basketball is my life”
