At least you participated. You gained experience. You'll do better, good luck!

Hey. You competed. That's worthy of praise in and out of itself.

Unpopular opinion, but becoming complacent with a "participation medal" is exactly what OP shouldn't do. This should be the kick in the ass needed for OP to start getting better.

@#17 Of course they should work towards getting better, I was just saying how this shouldn't be discouraging.

@17 I wrestled in high school. My first time wrestling varsity, my coach sent me to a tournament. He knew I was going to get my ass handed to me but he sent me because of the exposure and experience. And although I completely sucked, I learned what works, what doesn't, corrected some minor details that had a huge impact. You can only become better by going against those better than you. I think that's what #2 was getting at.

At least you tried ...

It would've been better if your mother "sparred" you the joke (just had to say it). All in all, being able to participate and compete is amazing - you'll get even better and have more opportunities to get first place!

Better to have bronze than nothing

As long as you tried your best, thats all that counts.

you guys ganna get the second next time, and you mom will tell you the reason again.

That sucks op, parents never realize how much a comment from them can hurt our self-esteem.

To try and fail is better than to not have tried at all.

It's better than staying at home and doing nothing. You're exercising and keeping fit. Speaking of which, you should teach us how. It seems fun lol
