Carlo at Worlds

At compulsories I didn't do so well, but I hadn't even reckoned if I could pass. However, I hadn't trained well enough to be on such an important stage. After my workshop I was told I had passed to the finals! I barely found some minutes to think of a freestyle: being among so many famous players I was happier to spend my time with them rather than practicing alone... and the excitement didn't help when I was on the stage: I can't say I'm happy for my freestyle. But the Worlds' experience was fantastic, I'll never forget it. And I can even state I've been the first Italian finalist ever...
