(FISA Olympic Continental Qualification Regatta For Asia
Shanghai Water Sports Complex
April 25-27, 2008)
Day 2: Morning was spent for Technical Rehearsal. I could not help but think again how precise and meticulous FISA people are. There was neither small nor unimportant detail.
Anticipate, anticipate, anticipate. Everything had to be checked, double-checked, and re-checked again. As Guylaine said, "you should always have back-ups".
But when I really think about it, we were dealing with dreams here. The best athletes have converged here. They prepared hard for this chance to qualify for the Olympics. It was up to the rest of us to ensure that they get equal chances in capturing that dream.
Safety and Fairness. Everything else are just details.
