What does Chris Spealler want to say to the athletes?
“Enjoy it. Don’t let the concern of competition, others, your performance, etc. rob you of why you first started doing this. Compete to win, compete to leave everything you have on the competition floor but remember WHY you do it. Support one another and be an inspiration to those in the community not only by your performance but by your sportsmanship as well.”
