We are back from Trondheim. Where the amateur Norwegian boxing championship tournament was. We had a lot of fun! We got there on early Friday morning. Everyone was booked in the same hotel, and all the weigh-in’s was held there. So after we checked in, and a couple hours of well needed sleep. W had to go weigh in, and he was 500 grams over his weight class. So he was moved up to light heavy weight. He felt fine in either, so it was no worries. After the boxing panel had their deliberations, and then they announced who was fighting that same day. W had his first fight on Friday. In total there were 11 fights that day. On Saturday there were a lot more fights and W had his second fight. Everyone thought W would win that fight, and then go into finals. There would have been more fights for light heavy weight, but TWO GUYS in light heavy weight were disqualified from the tournament for NOT SHAVING!!! FOR NOT SHAVING! Anyways, W lost in the semi-final just by ONE point. To be honest, it was not fair from the judges. They gave the other guy points for hitting when W was guarding!! You’re not supposed to get points when the opponent is guarding. It’s ridiculous. Not to be a sore loser, but perhaps the judges were a bit unfair since the opponent was from home team? But I’m proud no matter what, and he did get a medal for bronze. On Sunday it was the finals. I had lots of fun watching every fight! A lot of busted noses! haha.
I am very proud of W. It takes a lot of courage, determination, mental & physical strength to be a fighter! Maybe I’ll start boxing.
Here are some pictures from the weekend. I will post the boxing pictures and videos another day!
Anyways, ever since we came back very late on Sunday night, we have been resting! I can’t believe it’s Tuesday already. I don’t even remember what I did yesterday!
I’m relaxing now while W is at his boxing club gym and training! I should start preparing dinner soon! Making cream pasta. Mhhmm! We love pasta!!! And then walk the dog as I promised I would.
