I’m wasting my talent.
When will I get out and compete.
Thanks for the backhanded vote of confidence. I, perhaps like you think (with one giant declaration of arrogance, that I will justify later) if I was in training I would be competing on international stages.
Noticeably I’m not in training (broken leg aside).
I don’t mean to disappoint but I’m going to address the above.
