We are sports diplomats.

We practiced yesterday with young girls. The practice was structured like play so that they were having fun. Not exhausting work, but fun.

I was really glad to see they did such a thing for young kids. The older girls were a lot quicker, faster. We learned a lot from them.

We got a lot of experience.

Yes, I also agree. I think I can tell my coach about a lot of the exercises that we've learned when I go back to Russia.
