Mikey's write up!
At the Commonwealth Games it was very fun. I met lots of new people and made new friends. I thought it was a good achievement going all the way up to Scotland to play.
The matches were long, my longest match was four and a half hours. I had a great time battling on each day and I was in Scotland for ten days. I did ok in this event, scoring three and a half out of nine. It was my first international competition and I really enjoyed the experience.
I want to thank everyone who made this possible and I hope to do better in my next competition.
