As usual Emil was exited and a bit nervous about the matches, but he always tend to losen up when the 1st balls have been ping ponged! Then he has 6 more games to play and get the nervousness out of his body.
I was at home doing a bit of painting with Anne-Sophie, and I couldn't help thinking about Emil once in a while. At one o'clock the phone rang, and I knew that it was Emil.
By hearing his voice on the phone, I could tell that he was happy. " I won a silver medal, mom " he proudly said. I could hear that his face was smiling....and so was mine.
I'm really delighted for him - we all are. This is his 2nd medal this year. He has one of bronze as well. But to me it's of equal importance, that he becomes so proud and happy about his own achievements. A game where you play all by yourself is sometimes harder to lose, than the ones you play in a team.Soon the table tennis season will be over, but that will not be the end of ping pong in our house...perhaps anyone has heard of soundless ping pong balls????
