New experience and new achievements at the 2017 Big Bang

在经历了长达半年的冬天之后,终于迎来了风和日熙的Easter长周末。魁北克circuit巡回赛也走入了赛季大戏-BIG BANG。来自魁北克各个地区,渥太华地区,多伦多地区,甚至美国的各路好手相聚在熟悉的赛场 - College Letendre。 10名耿丽娟乒乓球学院的选手(Meech Dullaert, Eric Jiang, Daniel Chen, Rickey Deng, Judy Zhong, Maggie Jin, Ann Shiao, Sabrina Chen, Howard Chen and Shiwen Zhang)参加了第一天的单打比赛。 对于小选手来说,积分组别的选手之间,水平相当,差距并不是很大。输赢之间,在没有心理负担的情况下,也只毫厘之差。小选手们在领先的情况下的应对,在落后的情况下的处理,在失败的时候,收拾心情,重新出发,积极争取,打出自己的水平,享受比赛的过程,磨练自己的意志。很多时候,父母们看的比孩子们更紧张,努力做好后勤保障工作 – 午餐,小点,水果,水,不断的鼓励孩子。 欣喜的是Eric, Judy 和 Daniel 纷纷从自己的小组赛中(0-400)出线,晋级正赛。非常棒。Daniel 更是收获了两个8强席位(0-400,251-500)。Daniel的父母也是大感意外,Daniel午餐都没有来得及吃。在501-1000组别,Maggie打入了16强。在一场比赛中,Maggie在落后的情况下,顶住压力,最终取得了成功。他的父亲非常的欣慰,为女儿感到骄傲。Meech 虽然是第一次参加比赛。但是,非常惊喜的获得了小组第一的成绩,也晋级到了正赛。除Meech之外,他的父母也非常开心。Rickey的战绩并不是很理想,但是他也竭尽全力,尊重对手,认认真真打好每一场比赛。 在更高的组别中,学员们更是力争每一分。在公开赛中,Howard在QF中不敌最后的冠军得主Hanwei Wang。张释文在2201-3000组别中获得银牌。Sabrina一路过关斩将,最后夺取1601-2500 的冠军。她妈妈说,这是她第一次拿到这个组别的冠军,非常开心。Ann 也得到了8强的席位。在1401-2200的组别半决赛中,Sabrina 和对手Hussain Kabani屡屡打出精彩好球,观众也不断叫好,比分互相焦灼而上,Sabrina拼尽全力最后惜败。赛后也忍不住泪水,等待下一次再战。 (Sabrina in action) (Sabrina and Coach Geng) (Sabrina and [...]
