April's first Ping Pong tournament

Yesterday, April didn't go to school. Instead, she represented the school to attend MSSD Larut Matang Dan Selama below 12 years old Ping Pong Tournament.
Since my husband was there the whole event to support his princess, I went to work as normal. When I went to take a look at her at my lunch break, the match had over.
She got position number 5. Her Ping Pong coach expected a better result from her. He wanted her to be at position number 3 or 4.
Her coach was the one wearing red T shirt at the back. April got only a certificate for position number 5. Her coach said to us, April doesn't poor in skills, she is only lack of experience. She had done a very good job as this was her first time being placed in a tournament. In fact, she is trained in Ping Pong for less than a year. My precious baby appeared to be the smallest in size among all the players.

  8. Way to go April. Congratulations. Placement is not important. At least she tried her best. Your girls are so good in their studies, co-curiculum activities and others like drawing :) Thumbs up!

  12. This is a very good exposure for her. Doesn't matter that she got position number 5. The more exposure she gets, the more experience she'll gained. Keep up the good work April!

  13. Not bad for a young first timer and school rep. some more. She'll definitely improve after more practices and exposure. Her coach is a teenager? Looks very young in the pic.
