We are 45 minutes from go time for 3 meter. Grandparents are present. Alex is with his coach.
Let me break it down for you:
- There are 25 boys
- The top 10 go to nationals
- According to the degree of difficulty from their dive list, Alex is ranked 13th
This means he needs to move up 3 spots in the actual order. It’s really gonna come down to execution. If he executes each dive, nails a few, and doesn’t flub any, he should pull it off.
I will keep you posted live.
Here is a photo of Alex and his terrific coach, Steve, which speaks volumes about the role of coach. I have butterflies and I’m a little choked up.
