Tidwell, Germany: “We are not willing to be content with the last year’s result”

12 Feb 2015 12:52

I am currently training just like athletes in other types of sports, I prepare from one event to the next. Before I focus on the World Championship, I must first stand the test of fire in the preparation tournaments. The toughest one will be in Prague in February.

But, of course, I’m looking forward to the HMB World Championship “Battle of the Nations”-2015. The expectations of the entire team are very high! We are not willing to be content with the last year’s result.

We want to get a higher place this year. We have training scheduled, a workshop as well. We also hope to be able to field an injury-free team. I am not in a position to make further statements concerning the training structure.

I will participate in the “5 vs 5” category. This category is more interesting to me. As for me, “Mass Battle” is the most challenging category of the HMB sport. In “1 vs 1” you have your opponent in front of you all the time. In mass battles rivals come from all sides and you can test your mettle against multiple opponents simultaneously. So, it’s the most exciting and thrilling thing.

I wish good luck to my teammates, opponents and to me, of course!
