With less than 5 hours of sleep, we headed to the seeding qualification round.
Having had no time or opportunity to sight in and tune at 70 meters, Felipe started the shoot with a lot of 7s, 8s, and occasional flyers.
Therefore, we were not feeling so confident about our skills, due to the lack of training the day before.
However, the 5th round came and everything changed: we started feeling more confident with our equipment and got back to a somewhat normal baseline performance.
Galina finished the seeding round with 644 (4th seed) and Felipe finished with 613 (10th seed).
Both of the participants experienced a huge improvement, compared to the results of the previous day!
However, it wasn’t enough: we were now onto the elimination round.
Felipe was matched against Shawn Mattheson; he fought to not be eliminated, however the physical and the mental fatigue caught up to him and he dropped a 2-6 match against his opponent (a 5 times Canadian paralympian) in the 1/16 round.
Galina, though, came away with a quarter final win against Jyostna Challa, with the score of 138-135.
Now onto the next day!
