    Hello everyone! I just took two hours writing a blog and for some reason it didn’t post correctly and vanished into thin air. As such, I’d just like to say thanks to everyone for their great wishes as well as my great teammates from the olympiad. Last but not least, I’d also like to express my gratitude to our team captain John Donaldson for doing such a great job and leading us to a second bronze medal in a row.

    I would also like to comment on another topic which seems to be coming up frequently these days. I have no plans of currently changing federation and will definitely be playing the World Team Championship in Turkey this coming September.
