Soccer Tip: The Margin of Victory
When reflecting on the US Women's Soccer team's loss to Sweden, many sports critics made clear that US was the more polished team. They were the 2015 World Cup winners, however, they could not pull off the win at the 2016 Olympic Games. This has in part to do with the "margin of victory." Everything matters in preparation for a big game - on and off the field. In this case, the Swedish team did a better job preparing, and ultimately, that's what helped them advance.
Remember - everything counts! Treat your training seriously, work with your team, and keep you body healthy. If you do this, you'll be on the road to success!
