CONGRATULATIONS to Rocky and Paola – 2012 World Champions!
My two athletes, Rocky Carson and Paola Longoria, arrived at the 16th IRF World Championships in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic on August 1st, 2012 to take care of business. Rocky wanted to defend his 2012 World Championship Title he won in South Korea and Paola came on a mission to take the World Championship Title that alluded her in South Korea two years ago.
I am so PROUD of both of them as they accomplished what they set out to accomplish as they both have been training hard and long to be able to reach their goals. They both wanted to be crowned the 2012 World Champion and they did just that.
The IRF World Championships event is held biennially. The event features 30 countries that play in an individual competition in both singles and doubles, followed by a team competition to cap off the week to determine the World Championship Country.
The event ran from August 4-11, 2012 and was streamed for the IRF ….which was great to be able to see my players win.
Rocky and Paola now go home for a few days, chill and get right back to training as the IRT and LPRT season kicks off at the end of August beginning of September.
